Direct observation of practical skills (DOPS)

Foundation assessment tool

Directly Observed Practical Skills (DOPS) is a method similar to the Pharmaceutical Care Assessment (PCA/CEX) that has been designed specifically for the assessment of practical skills.

This tool is useful for demonstrating competence in a range of practical activities.

The observed process should take no longer than 15 – 20 minutes, and a further five minutes should be allocated for obtaining feedback.
