Southampton GP Education Programme
  • As part of my fellowship, I assisted the programme directors of the Southampton patch produce and deliver various learning packages
  • These were for a variety of audiences, with sessions for established GPs, trainees in difficulty and at various stages of training
  • For the ST1/2 cohort, we selected patient safety as an area to target. Learning modules on professionalism, prescribing and other fields were produced
why professionalism
Why Professionalism?
  • Professionalism is a vital aspect of modern medical practice
  • There are frequent examples from the medical press where professionalism has been compromised
  • Professionalism is often perceived as something doctors learn ‘on the job’ rather than via structured teaching– we sought to equip our trainees with knowledge of professional behaviour at an early stage in training
the ebl approach
The EBL Approach
  • Similar to PBL, but with important differences
  • Each session consists of several short cases, with supporting information to help guide discussion and support learning
  • The cases are self contained and do not require prior preparation
  • iPads or other internet access provided so that guidelines may be examined
  • The module consisted of two cases, plus a debate on professional attitudes
  • The first focussed on hospital working – with probity and team work as major themes
  • The second focussed on work in General Practice – with substance abuse, burnout and self help particularly targeted
  • Trainees were split into mixed groups of ST1/2 trainees, with eight doctors per group

Trainees were invited to bring their own experiences to the group, and to compare and contrast those to the cases offered

  • Resources in the form of GMC documents (Duties of a Doctor, Good Medical Practice), the MDU casebook and BMA guidelines were supplied to help guide and back up the learning
  • Contact details to support agencies such as those above were supplied, should any trainee discover they had issues that needed further guidance
  • Structured written feedback was received from each trainee at the end of the session
  • Trainees were also invited to link their learning to the GP curriculum so as to demonstrate the relevance of their learning
  • Universally positive feedback was received with trainees praising this approach to learning about professionalism
  • “It really helps to know who I can talk to”
  • “It’s interesting to see how tiny things like lateness can reflect bigger problems”
  • EBL is an effective approach when considering professionalism
  • Trainees found it helpful to discuss professional behaviours in a small group environment
  • Trainees were able to apply their own experiences to the cases presented and make the learning more relevant
  • The group facilitators found the modules helpful in guiding discussion and making a potentially dry subject approachable
