The foundation tool being used to structure and maintain high quality GP clinical learning environments is the GPCLE Framework.
The six elements of the Framework guide general practices to plan, establish, and regularly appraise the quality of the learning environment for different types of learners, regardless of context.
The collection of resources below help you to meet objectives under each framework element. Resources are relevant, malleable, and efficient to use, not detracting from your business and service demands.
Why? The GPCLE Framework is a comprehensive approach to structuring the general practice learning environment to strengthen and maintain quality.
Who? The GPCLE Framework is particularly applicable for new teaching practices, new supervisors, and for benchmarking and planning quality improvement for existing practices.
How? The GPCLE Framework sets out the six key elements of a high-quality learning environment in General Practice, and underlying objectives. Resources, tools, and strategies under the six elements can be utilised to identify opportunities, fill gaps, and comprehensively structure, build, and maintain your quality learning environment.
The value an organisation places on learning and education will be reflected in its internal policies and procedures and in the way the organisation communicates internally and to the wider community about educational activities.
