Getting Started in Medical Education

Venue:Online

Time:7.00–8.00 pm (AEST)

Price:RACGP Members: Free

Education is implicit in our roles and responsibilities as a GP. Each day we educate our patients, our communities, our colleagues and ourselves. Education however is not solely about the imparting of knowledge - it involves an understanding of the conceptual and contextual application of that knowledge.
The RACGP has been tasked with an increasing role in the education and training of GPs. To this end, we need to conceptually and contextually deliver this education - and that's the role of a medical educator. This webinar will explore the roles and responsibilities of a medical educator, the varied routes into medical education, the differences between medical education and supervision, and the resources and supports available to GPs with an interest in medical education

Getting Started in GP Research

Venue: Online
Time: 7.00–8.00 pm (AEST)
Price: RACGP Members: Free

General practice is described as the foundation of the Australian health care system, but GP's express concern that their roles and skills are poorly understood and underestimated. GPs can feel threatened when other disciplines and professions want access to MBS rebates or prescribing rights. GPs are also expected to follow guidelines derived from evidence generated in secondary or tertiary care which may not apply to their patients. To counter these trends requires robust evidence regarding the unique skills of general practitioners and their effectiveness in primary care.This evidence can only be generated if more GPs become researchers or are involved in research projects
