150637 - GP Supervisor Professional Development Workshop 2019.1

Northern Territory General Practice Education Limited (NTGPE)

An interactive face-to-face workshop designed for Northern Territory General Practice Education (NTGPE) accredited GP supervisors by invitation only; this workshop covers the topics of clinical safety triage and supervision, evidence-based medicine upskilling – clinical decision-making tools and rational investigation, as well as clinical reasoning and navigating the KFP exam.

Relevance to General Practice

The work of a general practitioner demands capability in being skilled in multiple domains. This workshop addresses two main issues. The first is the appraisal of problems and presentations in daily practice and how GP supervisors can work with GP registrars to assess and manage the risk of significantly or potentially seriously ill patients. The second is clinical reasoning and decision making, which are the main professional roles of being a general practitioner to provide patient-centred care. This workshop provides learning opportunities for GP supervisors to further develop their knowledge and skills to assist GP registrars in these areas.

Learning outcomes

  1. Assess clinical reasoning skills of GPRs, by their identification of key features in patients & clinical decision-making skills in a real-life practice setting
  2. Develop the skills to apply day to day clinical work into an assessment process by constructing a Key Feature Problem question using a real case.
  3. Develop clinical triage lists & implement a clinical supervision system, with focus on GPS' improving the quality and safety of care that GPR's provide patients
