NTCER Review x RACGP ERG Focus Groups

GP Supervisors invited to participate in focus groups with GPSA and RACGP ERG team
GPSA’s member consultation as part of our 2022 review of the NTCER is heading into its final stages. This involves a round of workshops exploring the terms and conditions for registrar employment in the context of the broader changes needed to make general practice sustainable into the future. As this objective overlaps with a research project RACGP is conducting concurrently, we have chosen to collaborate on this project in this final stage and thus extend this invitation to all GP Supervisors with knowledge of the NTCER:

The RACGP Education Research team invites you to join a focus group discussion about RTO-led best practices in general practice training to ensure they’re not lost in the transition.
You’ll be compensated for your time with $150 via PayGP.
Discussions will explore practices and programs you’ve found effective in supporting training and preparing trainees for independent practice.
Research aims and objectives
We’re hoping to capture what’s working well, what could be strengthened and what’s possible moving forward.
The project will inform the future directions of GP training in relation to technology-enhanced training, the trainee-supervisor/employer relationship, and cultural capability.
What you need to do
First, read the participant information and consent form. If you’re interested in participating, register your interest. You’ll then be asked to indicate your availability.
If you have a strong preference against participating in a focus group discussion, individual interviews can be arranged.
Feel free to extend this invitation to colleagues who may be interested in participating.
Ethics approval
The project has been approved by the RACGP National Research and Evaluation Ethics
Committee (Project number 22-133). The Zoom meetings will be recorded.
These discussions are being conducted as one component of a 2022 RACGP-led Education Research Grant project.
