Findings from research collected from over 247,000 GP registrar clinical encounters across NSW and ACT can now be accessed via a single one-stop-shop website.
The website showcases the results from the Commonwealth funded Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training (ReCEnT) research study, led by GP Synergy – the organisation funded by the Commonwealth to deliver GP training in NSW and ACT.
GP Synergy CEO, John Oldfield, said the flagship ReCEnT project is a valuable contributor to the state, national and global general practice education and training research pool.
“As the ReCEnT project documents Australian GP registrars’ educational and clinical experience over time, its key findings can significantly influence the education and training of upcoming generations of GPs.
“Much of the research has been conducted in partnership with a range of Australian and international researchers, underscoring its relevance to GP training across jurisdictions,” Mr Oldfield said.
Professor Parker Magin, GP Synergy’s Director Research and Evaluation Unit said research outcomes are now easily accessible in the one location.
“The findings from more than 50 published papers and 80 conference presentations covering topics from antibiotic prescribing to emergency department referral patterns to clinical encounters with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients are available.
“We are ensuring that general practice educators can access these findings so the contribution of our research to evidence-based practice is enhanced.
“The website also includes information about other GP training research projects being undertaken by members of the Research and Evaluation Unit,” Professor Magin said.
