The hospital ‘grand round’ concept was applied to a general practice continuing professional development activity. Interactive learning sessions were developed to deliver evidence based medicine clinical education for general practitioners and general practice learners (registrars/medical students). The acceptability of the GP grand round format was examined through analysis of participant responses to learning objectives.
The article explores some of the issues associated with delivery of small group case based discussion.
Evaluations demonstrated that participants in the grand round valued the opportunity to interact with other participants in a small group format, exchanged and shared knowledge and had their learning needs met. The overall quality of the learning experience for the majority of participants was either good or excellent. The application of vertically integrated continuing professional development through a grand round format appears acceptable and effective.
