Supervisor - In-practice teaching
Now that the EASL is completed, Supervisors need to conduct on-going supervision and in-practice education.
Year 1 (GPT1 and 2) – minimum 1 hour per fortnight of scheduled and uninterrupted time.
Most teaching activities are conducted by the supervisor and relate to the registrar’s daily case load; for example, one-on-one clinical case discussions and mentoring.
Other activities might include direct observation, case-based teaching, patient scenario discussions, joint consultations, formal teaching on specific topics, review of recorded consultations, demonstration of and participation in clinical procedures, random case analyses, small group discussions and cultural education.
Teaching time requirements
Teaching time includes both formal and informal teaching activities, and the amount of time required depends on the registrar’s stage of training.
Some scheduled teaching sessions should be one-on-one that address the registrar's individual learning needs. For example, observation of consultations, review of medical records, feedback, assessment, and critical incident review.
