OBJECTIVE: To investigate changes of different domains of breaking bad news (bbn) competences after a teaching module for medical students, and to collage the results generated by different approaches of evaluation. METHODS: Rating of medical student-SP interactions by means of a global rating scale and a detailed checklist used by SPs and independent raters. RESULTS: Students improved their breaking bad news competency. However, the changes vary between the different domains of bbn competency. In addition, results generated by different evaluation instruments differ. CONCLUSION: This study serves as a stimulus for further research on the training of specific elements of bbn and different approaches of evaluating bbn competency. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: In light of the different facets of bbn competency, it is important to set priorities regarding the teaching aims and to provide a consistent approach.
