Congratulations to chief investigator Dr Alison Fielding and our Research and Evaluation Team who have had a paper published in BMJ Open:
Fielding A, Mundy B E, Tapley A, Klein L, Gani S, Bentley M, Boland R, Zbaidi L, van Driel M L, Holliday E and Magin P. Study protocol: content and perceived educational utility of different modalities of clinical teaching visit (CTV) workplace- based assessments within Australian general practice vocational training: a cross-sectional study. BMJ Open 2021;11:e045643. doi:10.1136/bmjopen-2020-045643
The aim of this study is to address the current evidence gap regarding CTVs by eliciting registrar and CT visitor perceptions of CTV content and educational utility in varying practice settings. The findings of this study will be of importance in the domain of medical education, particularly regarding competency- based medical education in Australia.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the amount of face-to-face CTVs carried out, this has provided an opportunity to gather evidence on different CTV modalities and remote CTV options.
Study participants are registrars and CT visitors of CTVs conducted from March 2020 to January 2021, from three regional training organisations (GP Synergy, General Practice Training Tasmania and Northern Territory General Practice Education) across four Australian states and territories (encompassing 37% of Australian GP registrars).
