[email protected] WEBSITE http://www.harrogategpsts.co.uk/ 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 Some of the stuff you learnt in medical school is out of date (most of what I learnt) General practice is a lot about rather soft knowledge, not so much the hard facts of textbooks.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 ICE BREAKER GETTING TO KNOW YOUR GROUP HOPES AND FEARS GROUP LEARNING Most of the work you will be doing is in small groups.
