4. PROCEDURE CanMEDS Physician Competency Framework (RCPhysCanada)
Core Competencies for Psychiatric Practice (ABPN)
Competence based Curriculum for Specialist Training in Psychiatry RCPsych
The seven roles included in the "Profile of the Psychiatrist“ (Expert Decision-making, Communicator, etc) were allocated to seven pairs of members of the working group each linked with an EFPT member
They were then asked to select items from CanMEDS Physician Competency Framework and from Core Competencies for Psychiatric Practice (ABPN), modifying them as necessary to render them more relevant to the European perspective, and also adding new items as necessary

6. PROCEDURE Individual members of each group were asked to work separately without consulting each other.
Following that each individual member of the group had to consult with three psychiatrists involved in direct postgraduate training (ie: tutors or supervisors with more than five years of experience).
Trainees had to team with three experts (ie: trainees with more than two years of training).
As a result of this we obtained an extensive list of competencies to work on.
April 2008-Febr 08
7. PROCEDURE As a result of the previous work a long list of competencies full of repetitions and inconsistencies was produced
To facilitate the task of working on the list and cleaning it up a reduced core working group was set up

9. PROCEDURE The core working group obtained funding from the Section to have a meeting in February 2008.
Some items were added and some deleted to achieve consistency
The new clean list was distributed again to the national associations for evaluation
Valencia, July 2008
The list of competencies was reviewed by the working group taking into consideration the suggestions made by the national associations
Copenhagen, April 2008
11. The Core Working Group obtained new funding from the Section to meet in October 2008
After reflection the aims of the working group were changed: it was decided not to go on to develop a structured training programme based on competencies but rather to leave the list as it was to allow national associations to adapt it to their national training regulations.
It was also decided to add some recommendations regarding assessment.
Ghent, October 2008
Again the Core Working Group was supported by the Section to meet in London in order to receive training in assessment
Once this was achieved the group went on to develop a complete list of methods of assessment for each one of the competencies
London, December 2008
Finally the group met for two days before the Budapest meeting to complete the document by adding an introduction and a glossary of terms
