RESEARCH ROUNDUP – MARCH 2018
Have you come across MedEdPublish yet? It’s the European Association of Medical Educators’ (AMEE) open access journal. Edited by local Aussie med ed identity Professor Richard Hays, this journal enables post-publication peer review.
Next month’s theme is ‘the development of health professional educators’.
I’ll keep you posted on any interesting papers!
Twelve tips to promote a feedback culture
As you know – GPSA in collaboration with GPTT and Monash University received an Education Research Grant* to adapt and validate a tool for measuring the educational alliance – the GP Supervisory Relationship Measure (GP-SRM).
This paper by Ramani et al provides 12 tips to promote a feedback culture that swings the feedback pendulum from recipes to relationships.
And that’s what the GP-SRM does!
Tip 7 in this paper is “establish an educational alliance”. The GP-SRM measures the educational alliance from the supervisor’s perspective. It also promotes reflection.
GPSA will be launching the GP-SRM soon, including running workshops with Supervisor Liaison Officers and supervisors to get them using the tool.
Keep an eye on our e-news and website for more details!
The 12 tips in this paper are:
A terrific paper! Read it here:
* the GP-SRM project was supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Australian General Practice Training Program and support from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
This fascinating paper by KPMG looks at the trends, predictions and actions that healthcare leaders can take.
Their snapshot of trends and predictions is:
Healthcare as a service (I thought it already was??)
Consumer held electronic medical record (ahem!)
IoT (that’s the Internet of Things) enabling outcome based care anywhere
Wearables, digestible and implantables
Precision medicine: genetics environment and lifestyle
Practice based evidence (using data analytics and quantum computing, wow!)
AR/VR (that’s augmented and virtual reality)
3D printed casts (no more plaster of Paris!), implants and organs
Human augmentation: rise of the cyborg (scary/amazing)
Treating and preventing diseases with gene therapy
Building a closer relationship between humans and AI (“Dave? Dave? I can’t let you do that Dave”)
Automation: rise of medical robots (yep, a robot that does brain surgery in 2.5 mins instead of 2 hrs – but it’s not like it’s brain surgery – oh, wait a minute, yes it is!)
Medical drones and autonomous vehicles (no, not your worst-ever lecturer, those little gizmos that fly around can deliver things to rural and remote Australia!)
Hospital design evolution (oops! Don’t mention that one around Adelaide!).
Read it here – It really is fascinating and easy to read:
Will robots really steal our jobs?
This report by PWC looks at how automation will roll out in different industry sectors, occupations and demographic groups across 29 OECD countries.
They predict that roll out up until 2030 will come in three waves:
Health and social work as well as education come in low on the list of those at risk – well, according to this report anyway.
It’s yet another interesting report on this issue which is already hitting us all but will only continue to do so.

AHPRA Research Framework
AHPRA has released its first research framework for the National Scheme.
It consists of research priorities and research principles.
The priorities are:
Don’t know what it means for the future but I’m sure we’ll find out!
