General practice registrars’ clinical uncertainty, and in-consultation information- and assistance-seeking

Home / General practice registrars’ clinical uncertainty, and in-consultation information- and assistance-seeking

Congratulations to our Research and Evaluations Team and their collaborators who have had a paper published in Health Education in Practice: Journal of Research for Professional Learning!

The paper explores the association of Australian GP registrars’ responses to uncertainty with their in-consultation information-, advice- and assistance-seeking. The paper involved a cross-sectional analysis of data from the Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training (ReCEnT) cohort study in four Australian states. In ReCEnT, GP registrars record details of 60 consecutive consultations, six-monthly, three times during training. The paper utilised data from 589 registrars who contributed details of 70,412 consultations.

This is the first study to examine trainees’ levels of uncertainty and their seeking of information and assistance.
