Chaos alert: GP training in tatters?

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?”
