General practice occurs in a wide range of settings. The work environment of a small rural practice, for example, is starkly different to an urban practice with 20 GPs that operates as part of a national corporate chain.
This guide will describe a framework for teams and leadership that has evolved over the last 10 years.
Knowledge organisations, including general practices, comprise of a range of people with different but complementary skills and knowledge. They can improve performance by providing more opportunities for individuals to make decisions and contribute. This requires flexible approaches to leadership. Research indicates a group that works well together tends to perform better than one lacking quality teamwork.
The General practice management toolkit: Practice teams and leadership was developed in response to RACGP members requesting information relating to the topic and is provided subject to the RACGP’s disclaimer. Professional legal advice is recommended.
