Very concerning for us since we will start training our first Registrar in 2015 and these changes makes for great uncertainty
In the ‘Blogging on Demand’ series you get to choose the topic. If you have a great idea you want the world to know about, send an email, contact me via social media or leave a comment below. Karin Calford suggested the topic of this post. She sent an email asking: “With the imminent defunding of GPET, what happens to GP registrar teaching from this point on? Wondering if you would be willing to blog about this.”
Note: ‘GPET’ stands for ‘General Practice Education and Training.’ The organisation has been responsible for the training of general practitioners in Australia since 2001.
I am so pleased that people ask these questions. Karen wrote that, as a patient, she is concerned about the delivery of effective, patient-centred care in the future. As an example she mentioned the importance of teaching communication skills: “How will this sort of valuable non-clinical registrar training occur in the future?”
