Congratulations to GP Synergy academic registrar Dr Katie Fisher on winning the 2021 RACGP Foundation Charles Bridges-Webb Memorial Award!
Katie’s award recognises her project, undertaken in collaboration with Prof Parker Magin, Prof Mieke van Driel and Ms Amanda Tapley: The prevalence and associations of telehealth consultations in GP registrars’ practice: a cross-sectional study nested within the Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training (ReCEnT) study.
The RACGP established the award in memory of one of its most dedicated researchers, Professor Charles Bridges-Webb AO. Charles became a member of the RACGP in 1959, and was an inspiration and a wise mentor for generations of general practice researchers in Australia. The award is targeted at general practice registrars who recently were, currently are or will be undertaking an academic term in a discipline of general practice or rural health and comes with $1000 in prize money to pay for direct research costs.
