BACKGROUND: Clinician-scientists (CSs) are physicians who work in daily care and have an academic role in research or education. They may act as knowledge brokers and help to connect research and clinical practice. There is no data available on CSs' brokering activities and the perceived barriers and facilitators to optimising their role in general practice (GP) and elderly care medicine (EM). AIM: To identify the brokering activities of CSs in these fields and the barriers and facilitators they come across whilst sharing knowledge and connecting people in research and frontline health care...

The World Health Organisation policy of improving retention of rural health care practitioners recommended that continuing medical education (CME) programmes addressing their needs should be accessible and delivered where they live and work. This cross-sectional study involved a self-administered anonymous questionnaire completed by GPs attending CME small groups (CME-SGL) in Ireland. All GPs attending CME-SGL in a one-month period were invited to complete the questionnaire which examined demographic details, distance to travel to educational meetings/nearest regional hospital, barriers to accessing continuing education, whether CME-SGL met their educational needs, morale and professional isolation...

In Canada, family physicians may pursue extended training for added competence in areas such as Palliative Care or Emergency Medicine by applying to Enhanced Skills (ES) programmes. Despite the increasing popularity of ES programmes, there are no studies that examine trends in applications to ES programmes before and after the introduction of family medicine focused competency-based curricula at individual universities. Additionally, there is a scarcity of research examining factors common among applicants to ES programmes...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Trainees who have failed the Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) component of the Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) licensing examination present an educational challenge. This study describes a CSA resit programme and evaluates the outcomes when doctors reattempt the CSA. METHODS: We delivered an educational programme to trainees in North West England who were resitting the CSA in 2016 and 2017: the majority were undertaking periods of additional training time...

BACKGROUND: Community-based medical education (CBME) improves the learning of medical students. The outcomes depend on the circumstances in which students learn. So far, there has been no study on the short-term learning experienced by medical students on rural islands in Japan; hence, we specifically explored this in the case of islands in Okinawa. METHODS: We conducted one-on-one semi-structured interviews with seven medical students and three focus groups, each comprising three medical students...

INTRODUCTION: Social theories of learning consider learning and thinking as social activities. These activities may occur within a community of practice. Communities of practice may position learners as legitimate peripheral participants. This study tests whether legitimate peripheral participation provides an overarching theory to assist in evaluating learning and teaching of medical students undertaking short primary care attachments. METHODS: A questionnaire was delivered to all Year 4 students at the University of Auckland in 2015...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether GPs can support medical students in learning basic neurology in the context of a traditional hospital neurology attachment. METHOD: This was a qualitative evaluation using routinely collected data from stakeholders, consisting of qualitative data in the form of student evaluation questionnaires, course documentation and correspondence from faculty staff. RESULTS: The addition of GP teaching to the programme increased availability of patients with neurological problems accessible to students and provided a safe, supportive environment for students to learn their fundamental clinical skills...

The mini Clinical Evaluation Exercise (mini-CEX) is the most widely used assessment within the UK Foundation Programme. Despite being the archetype of a formative, workplace-based assessment, empirical evidence to support its formative value is lacking. I set out to explore our Foundation Programme trainees' experience of CEX assessments, through a small study utilising qualitative methodology. My informants' experience suggested that there remain numerous challenges in the implementation of formative assessments within the UK FP...

Leadership is one of the GMC's Generic Professional Capabilities for all medical specialties, but engagement in leadership activities is not currently routinely built into general practice (GP) training. We explored whether GP trainees in their first year of speciality training (ST1) could engage with a leadership activity in their practice placement. GP trainees were invited to participate in a voluntary leadership activity, with a small menu of optional activities to choose from. Evaluation was through electronic survey of trainees and educational supervisors (ESs) before and after the GP placement, and through trainee focus groups after the placement...

A doctor-patient consultation can be viewed as consisting of three parts: Patient's Part, Doctor's Part and Shared Part. Macro-Micro Supervision is a teaching method developed to train doctors in consultation techniques for the initial Patient's Part and to become more patient-centred. Doctors find the Patient's Part of our consultation method the most difficult. Macro-Micro Supervision is used when groups review video-recorded role-plays of real consultations or of simulated consultations, where participants alternate between playing doctor and patient...

Dundee University School of Medicine established a pilot for a 40 week long comprehensive Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) in 2016. Ten places for year 4 students are available which are shared between two regions of Scotland which are largely rural areas by UK definitions. This paper describes the drivers for the pilot, its implementation and early evaluation. For the evaluation, data were collected using focus groups and semi-structured interviews from the first cohort of seven students, four health service employed staff (two with leadership roles and two with regional student facing roles), 21 General Practitioner tutors, and from reflective audio-diaries kept by all students...

The working and learning environment within the NHS is challenging. 46% of GPs report emotional exhaustion, and trainees experience burn-out with higher prevalence than expected. Attending Balint groups (BGs) has been suggested to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue, helping GPs to thrive in their jobs. For this pilot service evaluation of BGs for GP trainees we used qualitative research methodology including surveys, participant observation, and semi-structured interviews. Fonagy's concept of resilience was used as the theoretical frame of reference...

Licensing assessments, such as the UK Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP), need to do more than ensure minimal levels of competence have been achieved. They should aid the development of lifelong learning skills. The summative components of the assessment create large amounts of data, which are reduced to binary pass-fail decisions ignoring the candidates very different profiles of strengths and weakness. Learners are largely unreceptive to feedback after summative assessments. Workplace-based assessments have not produced the learning benefits that were intended...
