ReCEnT is now online! - GP Synergy

ReCEnT is now online!

From 2020.1 Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training (ReCEnT) is online!

ReCEnT involves you recording information about your clinical consultations each GP training term. ReCEnT is an important tool to aid reflection on practice, and on educational and training needs. The more complete your clinical information the more useful ReCEnT is to you. Critical evaluation is encouraged in interpreting your ReCEnT report (remembering that ReCEnT is a reflective exercise, not a benchmarking exercise):

  • Was this a typical week?
  • Are the results unexpected?
  • Am I different from other registrars? If so, why might that be?
  • Am I getting an adequate range of clinical presentations for optimal learning (and exam preparation)?
  • Do I need to reconsider any aspect of my practice?

How does ReCEnT Online work?

The project requires you to:

  • complete online encounter forms, recording details of 60 consecutive consultations
  • complete a registrar and practice characteristic questionnaire.

You will be able to access ReCEnT Online via GPrime once you receive your invitation email. There will also be an instructional video that you can watch if you’re not sure how to complete the forms. You can find more information in GPrime at the ReCEnT program page.

GP registrars are provided with a feedback report that compares their consultations to the larger group of registrars and national GP data. Registrars are strongly encouraged to discuss this information with their supervisors and their medical educators. If registrars provide consent, a copy of their report will be sent directly to supervisors. Feedback reports are accessible in GPrime by Medical Educators and we recommend discussion of feedback reports at Training Advisor contacts or via email.

ReCEnT and Research

As well as this primary educational function, ReCEnT has a research function which allows ReCEnT findings to inform GP Synergy’s educational program, and GP training in Australia more generally. Your data is used for research purposes only with your written consent.  You can find details of research findings from  ReCEnT at our Research and Evaluation website.
