INTRODUCTION The educational impact of Mini-CEX and DOPS varies greatly and can be influenced by several factors. However, there is no comprehensive analysis and synthesis of the described influencing factors. METHODS To fill this gap, we chose a two-step approach. First, we performed a systematic literature review and selected articles describing influencing factors on the educational impact of Mini-CEX and DOPS. Second, we performed a qualitative synthesis of these factors. RESULTS Twelve articles were included, which revealed a model consisting of four themes and nine subthemes as influencing factors. The theme context comprises "time for Mini-CEX/DOPS" and "usability of the tools", and influences the users. The theme users comprises "supervisors' knowledge about how to use Mini-CEX/DOPS", "supervisors' attitude to Mini-CEX/DOPS", "trainees' knowledge about Mini-CEX/DOPS", and "trainees' perception of Mini-CEX/DOPS". These influence the implementation of Mini-CEX and DOPS, including "observation" and "feedback". The theme implementation directly influences the theme outcome, which, in addition to the educational impact, encompasses "trainees' appraisal of feedback". CONCLUSIONS Our model of influencing factors might help to further improve the use of Mini-CEX and DOPS and serve as basis for future research.
