This pilot study aims to evaluate the content and the consistency of what occurs during Clinical Teaching Visits (CTVs) arranged by GP Synergy for GP registrars, and to assess perceived usefulness of CTVs by registrars and CTV visitors (Medical Educators (MEs) and external visitors) in the Hunter, Manning and Central Coast GP Synergy training subregion.
Participants will be GP Synergy registrars and corresponding CTV Visitors who will be completing a CTV during 2019 in the Hunter, Manning and Central Coast training subregion. Since CTV visitors often conduct visits with multiple registrars per term, they will only be asked to respond about a maximum of three registrars, to limit the burden on their time.
Participants will be asked to complete a cross-sectional questionnaire following a CTV.
Registrars will be asked if they agree to linking questionnaire responses with routinely collected training data (e.g. practice rurality, part-time/full-time status) and their GP Synergy Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training (ReCEnT) project data.
De-identified responses will be collated to provide a report/update to be disseminated to CT visitors, registrars and GP Synergy.
