The CBA is made up of unfolding cases that take you through the step-by-step process of clinical thinking and decision making. The cases are developed to unfold over a single work shift, a couple of days or several weeks. There are approximately 20 scenarios, each accompanied by approximately five questions – so the entire assessment consists of approximately 100 questions. There is a mix of multiple-choice and multiple-select questions on CBA.
Multiple-choice questions have four options, only one of which is correct.
Multiple-select questions have six answer options, three of which are correct. The multiple-select questions will always prompt you to select the three best actions for a health care professional to take in the situation that the scenario describes.
Please read the questions carefully because once you have moved to the next question you will not be able to return and change your answer.
