Reform of GP training: HWNZ, MCNZ, RNZCGP collaborative General Practice Conference

  • 2010 Memorandum of Understanding between HWNZ, the RNZCGP and the Medical Council of New Zealand to

  • assess the existing General Practitioner Education Programme (GPEP) and Rural Hospital Medicine Programme in the light of New Zealand’s emergent health workforce requirements,

  • redesign these programmes to meet these emergent requirements, and

  • implement the redesigned General Practitioner vocational training programme progressively from January 2012.

  • MOU intended outcomes include: General Practice Conference

  • the mode of delivery of GP Education Programme (GPEP)

  • including some hospital based training in GPEP

  • changing the assessment process

  • identifying incentives for doctors to enter GPEP

  • funding all years of GPEP

  • aligning GPEP with training in other vocational scopes such as Accident and Medical and Emergency Medicine.

  • The process General Practice Conference

  • establishing a reference group with wide sector representation

  • Development of and consultation on, discussion document

  • Discussion paper proposed: General Practice Conference

  • Retaining the current three year duration of GPEP

  • six to eight months in hospital-based practice

  • the option of developing enhanced skills within the current scope of general practice, by undertaking advanced competency modules initiated during GPEP2 or GPEP3 and completed once Fellowship is attained

  • a compulsory academic component introduced to the programme,

  • Enhancing the current GPEP1 bursary

  • Amending the current assessment process

  • Progress to date: General Practice Conference

  • enhancing the existing GPEP1 bursary from January 2012

  • demonstration sites involving DHBs employing GPEP registrars have been evaluated successfully by HWNZ and the model is under consideration for roll-out nationally (2013)

  • the Division of Rural Hospital Medicine supporting extending the scope of RHM practice to several of the smaller provincial hospitals

  • the RNZCGP has enhanced the educational content of the GPEP2 programme by requiring registrars’ participation in formal learning groups.

  • feedback has identified a number of critical issues: General Practice Conference

  • there are very substantial externalities affecting GP education and that without change in these areas change in GPEP is likely to be at the margins.

  • The issues include:

  • agreement on the scope and nature of general practice

  • the timing of changes vis-a-vis the emergence of new models of service delivery (with new roles and associated funding)

  • the availability of funding to support the existing or revised GPEP and

  • capacity within general practice and DHBs to accommodate changes.
