It is useful to ask the trainee to outline how they will do the procedure and what precautions they will take, before they start the procedure. To assess clinical knowledge, understanding and reasoning related to performing the procedure on a patient. Remember that the most important aspect of this assessment is the constructive feedback you provide to the trainee after completing the DOPS.
