The WHO endorses family medicine (FM) globally to improve health outcomes. The Besrour Centre (BC) brings together partners from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to collaborate on FM development in different contexts. Faculty development is an identified area of need, but specific needs were unknown. A qualitative study was conducted using two 1-1.5-hour focus groups at the 2015 BC conference. Ten countries and 12 universities were represented. Transcripts from semi-structured interviews were analysed for themes using a descriptive approach...

Medical appraisal and associated revalidation are mandatory for doctors in the United Kingdom. However, the quality of appraisal documentation, which informs the revalidation process on a doctor's fitness-to-practise, is known to be variable. This preliminary study aimed to develop and test a formative educational tool that could be used, as part of routine appraiser training in the general practice setting, to review and provide evidence and feedback on the quality of documentation completion. A mixed-methods study was undertaken based on codesign principles, which elicited the views and opinions of medical appraisers, appraisal leads and medical managers on the content of an educational tool designed to reduce variation in appraisal paperwork completion...

The General Medical Council (GMC) sets the standards and requirements for the delivery of all stages of medical education and training in the United Kingdom (UK). Using a novel educational tool (the 'Digital Carousel'), we set out to determine to what extent current systems and process sit alongside standards as set out in GMC document 'Promoting excellence' and establish key foci of work going forward to promote excellence in the Caledonian-Rural track (CRT) General Practice Specialty Training (GPST) educational programmes by engaging key stakeholders in the process...

The recent rise to prominence of healthcare leadership worldwide has prompted those involved in medical education to consider how to facilitate learning to lead effectively. Research has focused on formal curriculum activities. Curricular theory suggests that trainee doctors may also learn through the informal curriculum but there is a lack of medical education literature on this. We aimed to explore how GP trainees learn about leadership in their GP training practices. Epistemologically grounded in social constructionism, this research involved 15 semi-structured interviews with GP trainees about to complete their training...

GPs have a wide range of attitudes to spirituality which contribute to variations in reported spiritual care. Study aims were: to assess concepts of spirituality and their application in a sample of GP trainers; explore statistically the relationship between personal spiritual affiliation, attitudes to, and reported practice of, spiritual care and; to examine whether GP trainers consider training in spiritual care to be adequate. Questionnaire involving 87 GP trainers using Likert scale responses and multinomial trend tests to analyse the relationships between 'concept of spirituality' and attitude to, or practice of, spiritual care...

Threshold Concepts are fundamental ideas within a discipline which are transformative, integrative, irreversible and usually troublesome. This article describes the threshold concept framework and discusses how it can offer new insights into how we focus teaching and facilitate learning around these concepts, such as uncertainty. Relevant research from a range of health disciplines are explored to consider which concepts may be critical to thinking and practising effectively in primary care. In addition, it is proposed that threshold concepts may have relevance to the GP recruitment crisis...

Australian general practitioners (GPs) commonly manage dermatological conditions requiring procedures. GP registrars have limited pre-vocational training exposure to dermatology and find skin problems challenging. We aimed to establish the prevalence, nature and associations of GP registrars' performance of skin procedures. We conducted a cross-sectional analysis from the Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training cohort study. Multivariable logistic regression was used to establish associations of our outcome (skin procedures, both including and excluding cryotherapy)...

Newly-qualified General Practitioners (GPs) are underprepared for the challenges of working as independent GPs. This study describes a practice swap - an innovative experiential learning opportunity to increase confidence amongst final year GP trainees for the challenges of future work. The effectiveness of the practice swap was evaluated across two separate GP training areas using questionnaires for GP trainees, practice managers, educational supervisors and newly-qualified GPs. In addition, GP trainees were interviewed in focus groups...

This article explores the experiences of General Practitioner (GP) appraisers working in a unfamiliar setting (Jersey) with appraisees new to the process. Findings were interpreted using the learning theory, 'situated cognition', to shed light on the experience of appraisers working with new appraisees more generally and contribute to new understandings of workplace learning. Rich qualitative data derived from transcripts of nine in-depth interviews with GP appraisers were analysed thematically in a rigorous and iterative manner process...

Despite the need to develop a non-medical out-of-hours (OOHs) workforce to address increasing healthcare demands and to support a strained GP workforce, there is no consensus on the required training and clinical competencies needed for nurses and paramedics to be developed as safe OOH practitioners. This paper presents the development and evaluation of one programme delivered in 2017 to paramedics seeking to work in OOHs services. Details of the course delivery are outlined and the mixed-methods evaluation presented...

NHS Scotland faces the challenges of an ageing population and a GP recruitment problem. Research has shown that hospital admissions can be reduced if community services can offer enhanced support, in keeping with the Scottish Government's 2020 Vision for healthcare. This study presents the findings of an evaluation of the first year of a three-year community GP fellowship which included working in primary care and secondary care and an educational programme. A grounded theory approach was adopted with data collected from GP fellows and key stakeholders using focus groups and individual interviews...

This report summaries work from a dissertation project which critically examines the uses of humour in the GP small group learning environment, via a qualitative enquiry approach. Humour is widely used in medical education, though conclusions from literature are ambiguous and rarely field-focused. The aims of my enquiry were to observe the types of humour used and explore the impact these have, with a focus on the 'curriculum in action'. I used two data collection methods including a group observation as a non-participant and a focus group discussion with trainees...

High-quality training is a prerequisite to teaching future general practitioners. To inspire and guide all countries to implement General Practice (GP) specialist education and training and bring it to the highest standards, we aimed, within the European context, to produce a collaborative document entitled 'Educational Requirements for GP Specialty Training'. Through an iterative process existing documents from the European Academy of Teachers in GP and Family Medicine (EURACT) and the World Organization of Family Medicine Doctors (WONCA) were collated...

With a crisis in general practice recruitment, we need 50% of UK medical students to choose general practice as a career. Nottingham University does not achieve this. 2 paired careers tutorials, giving guided careers advice were embedded into a 4-week undergraduate attachment in primary care. They promoted portfolio GPs and how general practice could fit into career choices. Paired evaluation was completed (Open-ended questions on current career choices and a 5-point Likert scale "Is General Practice is a possible career choice for me?") The data was analysed using the Wilcoxon signed rank test...
