PURPOSE: To investigate whether publishing research is an important aspect of medical careers, and how it varies by specialty and rural or metropolitan location. METHODS: Annual national panel survey (postal or online) of Australian doctors between 2008 and 2016, with aggregated participants including 11 263 junior doctors not enrolled in a specialty ('pre-registrars'), 9745 junior doctors enrolled as specialist trainees, non-general practitioner (GP) ('registrars') and 35 983 qualified as specialist consultants, non-GP ('consultants')...

This study evaluated a program arising from the Commonwealth policy of regionalised training for general practice with regard to the outcomes for the region investing in the training program. A complete operational audit was performed of the outcomes of a training provider of the Commonwealth program, evaluating workforce contribution and retention in the region during and after training, stratified for the effects of locally contextualising, advanced skill training and origin of trainee. The local regional workforce contribution during training peaked at 130 full-time equivalents in 2015...

Introduction Many patients present to doctors with oral health conditions and it is, therefore, important that they have the knowledge and skills to give advice and signpost appropriately. Aim To ascertain the baseline knowledge and confidence of doctors in managing oral conditions and to identify topic areas for training.Design A baseline survey was conducted. Two training programmes were then delivered based on the finding of this survey, followed by a post-training survey. Setting North West London training programme for foundation year 1 (FY1) doctors and general medical practitioner (GP) trainees...

NHS Scotland faces significant challenges in delivering the Scottish Government's 2020 Strategy for Healthcare. GP recruitment and retention are problematic for deprived area practices (DAPs). Recently-qualified GPs are more likely to join practices in areas where they have trained and so it is important to encourage GP training in deprived areas. This study aimed to identify the perceptions and experiences of recently-qualified GPs who had trained in DAPs. A grounded theory approach was used with 14 GPs interviewed in focus groups and in-depth interviews...

BACKGROUND: Despite patient preference and many known benefits, continuity of care is in decline in general practice. The most common method of measuring continuity is the Usual Provider of Care (UPC) index. This requires a number of appointments per patient and a relatively long timeframe for accuracy, reducing its applicability for day-to-day performance management. AIM: To describe the St Leonard's Index of Continuity of Care (SLICC) for measuring GP continuity regularly, and demonstrate how it has been used in service in general practice...

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...

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...

BACKGROUND: The educational environment is critical to learning and is determined by social interactions. Trainee satisfaction translates to career commitment, retention and a positive professional attitude as well as being an important factor in assessing the impact of the training program. This study aimed to validate the Scan of Postgraduate Educational Environment Domain (SPEED) tool and assess its appropriateness in evaluating the quality of General Practice (GP) rural postgraduate educational environment...

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...

OBJECTIVE: Increased demands from healthcare services have led to new roles for healthcare professionals (HCPs). Simulation based learning (SBL) can offer multidisciplinary HCPs and students a format to train for such emerging roles. The aim of this work was to adapt existing nursing SBL to involve pharmacy students and evaluate perceptions and effectiveness of SBL when used for interprofessional education (IPE). METHODS: Settings were a simulated hospital ward and a general practitioner (GP) practice...

BACKGROUND: General Practice training in the civilian and military environments follows a common training pathway, yet the scope of practice of a military General Practitioner (GP) varies significantly. A level of care for the acutely unwell and traumatically injured patients is frequently provided in austere environments remotely located from definitive medical care. This qualitative service needs evaluation scopes current level of trauma and acute care training and requirement for further training within military GPs and GP trainees...

BACKGROUND: Identification of perinatal mental health problems and effective care for women who experience them are important considering the potentially serious impact that they may have on the wellbeing of the woman, her baby, family and wider society. General practitioners (GPs) play a central role in identifying and supporting women and this study aimed to explore GPs' experiences of caring for women with perinatal mental health problems in primary care. The results of this study may provide guidance to inform policy, practice, research and development of curriculum and continuous professional development resources...

Patients with mental health conditions commonly present in General Practice. Mental health curricula are broad. We do not know that trainees are exposed to the learning they require. This study aimed to establish the prevalence, characteristics and associations of GP trainees' management of mental health problems. This paper presents a cross-sectional analysis of the Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training (ReCEnT) study, an ongoing multisite cohort study of Australian GP trainees (registrars) documenting their clinical experiences over 60 consecutive consultations...

INTRODUCTION: The increasing shortage of physicians, especially general practitioners (GPs), in rural areas is an issue in most western countries. Many redistribution strategies have been utilized in the past to counter this shortage. The physician's perception of rural areas might be an underestimated aspect of a subsequent choice of living and working environment. The aim of this study was to explore determinants influencing this subjective perception of rurality and to develop further strategies to resolve the physician shortage in rural areas...

The recent rise to prominence of healthcare leadership worldwide has prompted those involved in medical education to consider how to facilitate learning to lead effectively. Research has focused on formal curriculum activities. Curricular theory suggests that trainee doctors may also learn through the informal curriculum but there is a lack of medical education literature on this. We aimed to explore how GP trainees learn about leadership in their GP training practices. Epistemologically grounded in social constructionism, this research involved 15 semi-structured interviews with GP trainees about to complete their training...
