Abstract: 

CHAMP faculty evaluation instruments measure the impact of the CHAMP faculty development program on the quantity and quality of geriatric teaching in the patient setting. They include: a geriatrics knowledge test; an attitudes on aging survey; Commitment to Change contract and follow up survey; and surveys on self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching and practicing geriatric clinical skills and teaching across the ACGME core competences during inpatient teaching rounds. A user's guide is provided.

CHAMP (Curriculum for the Hospitalized Aging Medical Patient) is a multi-tiered educational project with a faculty development program at its core. Hospitalists, general internists, and family practitioners who teach residents and medical students are the targeted audience. The evaluation instruments provided are designed to measure change in clinical skills and behaviors teaching and practicing geriatrics and the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting.

Educational objectives: 

The CHAMP Evaluation Instruments for Faculty Learners measure:

  1. self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching geriatrics in the inpatient setting;
  2. self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching across the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting; and
  3. frequency with which the team performs geriatric clinical skills in the inpatient setting


Commitment to Change Contracts engage faculty learners in goal setting, and Follow-Up Surveys track inpatient teaching experiences and provide opportunity for reflective learning.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

CHAMP Evaluation Instruments have been administered to: 26 general internists, 2 hospitalists, 12 geriatricians, and 4 fellows at the University of Chicago.

CHAMP evaluation instruments for residents and medical students are also available via the weblink provided.

For an overview and user's guide for CHAMP, and a table of contents of the CHAMP modules and evaluation instruments, please refer to the CHAMP OVERVIEW and USER'S GUIDE. Teaching materials specific to each geriatric content area, and to sessions of "Teaching on Today's Wards" (on clinical teaching skills and the ACGME Core Competencies) can be found as stand-alone products, and will be forthcoming.
