Trainer Workshops/Trainer Group

Both the West and East training centres run regular group sessions for their GP trainers. These provide valuable opportunities for trainer development and for networking within the local training communities and ensure a regular platform for interaction between the programme and trainers.

The sessions are run by the trainers themselves ensuring an interesting and relevant mix of topics. There is an expectation that trainers will lead a trainer workshop at least once every 2 years as part of their personal development as a teacher/trainer. It is also an opportunity to receive peer appraisal of your group teaching skills.

Intending trainers and anyone considering a training role are very welcome to come along and meet the group.

New E-Portfolio Prescribing Reviews – What the heck are these?

 

Led by Dr Natalie Hawkrigg

5pm – 7pm

This workshop will start with a 'Welcome back' after the summer break, and hopefully we will get to meet some of our new intending trainers.

The session will start with a good catch up of what is news worthy, followed by 20 minutes forward planning trainer workshops, looking at topics generated from our Castle Inn conference and deciding who might be best suited to facilitating.

The final hour will be looking at the new e-portfolio prescribing reviews that you will be doing with GPRs beginning August 2019.

How to manage conflict with your GP trainee. Is confrontation the only answer?

 

Led by Dr Tim Sanders and Dr Mike Hanley

 

5pm – 7pm

In this session the focus will be on your own experiences. Michael and Tim (both of whom will readily admit that they tend to avoid conflict more than they probably should) will provide an opportunity for trainers to share their own experiences and ideas to benchmark with each other about how they manage minor niggles and more major issues with their trainees.

Topic - Feeling lost with what is what?

 

Feel you have lost touch with trainer standard requirements? Feeling fed up with all the forms that need filling out? Feel a bit lost with what is what?

Use this trainer’s session to get to grips with the different forms, requirements and standards of GP training. PLEASE BRING ALONG A FORM  or a TRAINER STANDARD to share with the group. The discussion around each should generate the content of the workshop. This session will be group facilitated.
