To give participants tools to safely guide GP trainees in their individual development track.
With the explosion in the volume of evidence and understanding of medical conditions and their management, medical practice has changed and Medical Education has changed also. It is no longer about learning the specific management of a range of clinical cases. It is more about ensuring that doctors in training know where to find the evidence, can clinically apply that evidence, and have developed good professional habits in team working, communication skills, record keeping, an ethical approach, resource awareness, time management and self-care. This is why it is now more important than ever to promote self-regulated learning (SRL) in GP training.
