Abstract

PURPOSE:

To produce an internationally valid tool to assess skill in performing lateral tarsal strip surgery.

METHODS:

A panel of 7 content experts adapted a previously published tool for assessing lateral tarsal strip surgery by using a modified Dreyfus scale of skill acquisition and providing behavioral descriptors for each level of skill in each category. The tools were then reviewed by 11 international content experts for their constructive comments.

RESULTS:

Experts' comments were incorporated, establishing face and content validity.

CONCLUSIONS:

The tool International Council of Ophthalmology-Ophthalmology Surgical Competency Assessment Rubric for Lateral Tarsal Strip Surgery has face and content validity. It can be used globally to assess lateral tarsal strip surgical skill. Reliability and predictive validity still need to be determined.
