The patients and conditions that GP registrars see can be highly variable between training practices, and from one registrar to another.
To promote reflective practice, approximately two weeks after completing the encounter forms, GP registrars receive their Registrar Feedback Report. The report compares their practice with that of their peers in the following areas:
- patient demographics
- test ordering practice
- continuity of care
- duration of consultation
- seeking of information
This information helps registrars identify what patient exposure they might be missing to help them make
informed decisions about future placements and learning opportunities, as well as targeting their preparation for exams.
