BCPA Self-Assessment Readiness Quiz



Note: PACB is testing this quiz to determine if it can be used as part of the application/eligibility process. We invite you to participate and provide feedback. Your score on the quiz will not affect your eligibility status. However, we are asking all candidates to complete the self-assessment in order to collect data. The statements generally reflect the core knowledge skills and abilities of a practicing patient advocate. Use your score only as a tool to identify areas in which you may require additional study. The content of this quiz is intended to support and reflect the core PACB documents, Competencies and Best Practices of a Patient Advocate and the Ethical Standards for Board Certified Patient Advocate.

The Readiness Quiz represents a high-level summary of the core tasks, knowledge, skills and abilities required of an entry level patient advocate that are currently being validated through a Job Task Analysis study. Although applicants will not be deemed ineligible to test based on score, completion of the Readiness Quiz is a required element of the application process.

Note this tool is still in beta. Results and feedback will be monitored. Submit any comments or feedback related to the Quiz in the Feedback form below.
