We represent supervisors through credible advocacy that is backed by sound research. GPSA is open to partnering with relevant health sector policy makers and representatives on research that can give new insights into the GP training climate and the contribution that supervisors make to it.
Please contact us if you wish to discuss a potential research proposal.
This collaborative research project lead by GPSA aimed to explore and expand on existing evidence about rural supervision to meet the learning needs of the RG2 group across the Victorian Rural Generalist Program curriculum. It specifically focused on three rural regions of Victoria: Hume, Loddon Mallee, and Barwon South West. Further, this project aimed to use this information to develop a Supervision Roadmap to guide the implementation of high-quality supervised learning across the core generalist curriculum in regional Victoria.
The GPCLE is a new framework to guide continuous quality improvement of the practice learning environment. The GPCLE has been adapted for general practice training environments from the Best Practice Clinical Learning Environment (BPCLE) Framework as part of a research project funded by the Australian Government via the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program.
The project set out to adapt and validate a tool to measure the educational alliance from the GP Supervisor’s perspective. The result is the GP-Supervisory Relationship Measure for Supervisors (GP-SRMS) which is now validated for use in the AGPT program and the Australian general practice sector. It is understood that this is a world-first.
GPSA, in partnership with GPEx and the University of Adelaide, is currently conducting research to better understand the financial implications of teaching and GP supervision in the AGPT program across Australia. This research hopes to bring to gain a understanding of the real cost of supervising registrars across the practice, to inform the development of future models of GP training. GP Supervisors will shortly be invited to participate in the research via a questionare. More info on the research can be found in the project clarification communication document in the link below.
GPSA is interviewing female GP supervisors about “Why do women GPs supervise registrars, or not?”. This GPSA funded research project aims to inform how to address the conditions to make it easier for women to supervise registrars in general practice. Please read the Explanatory Research Statement then register an expression of interest via the buttom below. Interviewees will receive a $150 gift card.
RACGP Fellows are invited to complete this one-minute online questionnaire, in affiliation with the University of Sydney and Western Sydney Local Health District, assessing clinician perspectives on psoriasis. This study is conducted by lead investigators Dr Annika Smith and Dr Belinda Lai.
Your responses will be informative as to standard practices of care, which is important for establishing a collective approach to the management of these patients. We strongly encourage you to participate.
Your responses are anonymous and will remain strictly confidential. All information collected will be non-identifiable. Please submit the survey only once.
