University of Queensland - Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine

Growing a female rural generalist workforce.

Indicative Funding
$149,023 over 1 year
This project will address ACRRM?s commitment to growing a future generalists? workforce, that must remain inclusive of the increasing proportion of medical graduates who are female. It will do this by identifying barriers and enablers to train and retain rural generalist women for access to high quality healthcare distributed communities. There are a range of building blocks which constitute training and employment conditions; being part of structured training like the QRGP or not, working in a fully salaried position or not and all the levels of nuance that build positive training and workplace culture for women. This project will build on existing research partnerships with JCU GP training, James Cook University and the University of Queensland drawing on existing experience and relationships formed which will in turn build research capacity and keep existing momentum.

University of Queensland - Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine

Exploration of cultural safety training and culturally safe practices by GP registrars when consulting with Indigenous patients.

Indicative Funding
$142,223 over 1 year
Developing a culturally safe workforce has been a long-held and enacted priority of JCU and JCU GP training to improve the health of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. JCU GP training program is committed to the national priority of closing the gap between the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. As such, JCU GP training deeply embeds the ACRRM Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander core curriculum across all elements of training and workplace learning. This project aims to explore the impact of the JCU GP syllabus on the development of cultural safety. This includes examining registrars ongoing critical reflection of knowledge, skills, attitudes, practicing behaviours and power differentials in delivering safe, accessible, and responsive healthcare free of racism. Outcomes of the study will inform syllabus review and development, and further strengthening of current, positively contributing elements. Furthermore, this project will contribute to a larger project on ?How can cultural safety, as determined by Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, be assessed amongst GP trainees??

Royal Australian College of General Practitioners - Educational Research Grant

Exploring GP medical educator and trainee perceptions of benefits, challenges and enablers to on-line and face to face teaching and learning in vocational GP training

Indicative Funding
$19,500 over 2 years (administered by General Practice Training Queensland)
With the COVID pandemic, the choice of face-to-face (FTF) teaching has been severely restricted, and previous reluctance to use alternative online (OL) modalities, is no longer an option. The teaching and learning processes used in our GP training programs have had to change to adapt. This necessity-driven change will of course alter the teaching and learning experiences of trainers and trainees resulting in both positive and negatives experiences for those involved. Utilising focus groups and in-depth interviews, our aim is to explore and understand the experiences of Medical Educators (MEs) and General Practice (GP) trainees, with OL and FTF teaching and learning in the changing GP vocational training environment to identify and understand the benefits, challenges and enablers to both the delivery of, and learning via FTF and OL teaching. Findings will support the development of effective and appropriate blended educational modalities by Regional Training Organisations (RTOs).

Australian College of Rural & Remote Medicine - Australian General Practice Training Education and Research Grants

Learning in remote general practice settings ? a robust comparative evaluation of quality and performance

Indicative Funding
$150,000 over 1 year
The project goal involves evaluating the learning quality and performance outcomes of GP registrars who undertook learning in remote communities for at least 6 months compared with matched GP registrars, learning in non-remote settings. This project addresses a key objective of both JCU GP Training and ACRRM, to develop a general practice workforce that serves the needs of rural and remote communities. It particularly explores the question as to the value of GP training delivered in remote compared with non-remote settings drawing on perspectives of trainees as well as formative assessment by educators and summative assessment of colleges.
