AIMS




To consider the statutory
educational requirements.
To look at the (hopefully
not new to you) concept
of adult learning.
Plan your learning-study
leave budgets!
How to engage with the
e-portfolio
Aims - Getting YOU To:





Start to think about looking
after yourself.
Start to think about the
consultation process.
Consider the organisation of
primary care.
Accelerate learning
Dealing with uncertainty
To consider comparisons
between primary and
secondary care.
PHILOSOPHY



3 years isn’t long enough to
learn all the skills and
knowledge for a lifetime in
practice.
Some of the stuff you learnt
in medical school is out of
date (most of what I learnt)
General practice is a lot
about rather soft knowledge,
not so much the hard facts
of textbooks.
PHILOSOPHY CONT


These skills remain constant
despite changing knowledge
and the changes of
deckchairs in health delivery
structures
A good GP is particularly
skilled in higher order social
skills that revolve around
consultation and
interpersonal skills
ADULT LEARNING
“The purpose of adult
education is to help them
to learn, not to teach
them all they know and
thus stop them from
carrying on learning”
Rogers 1988
