Communication Skills Toolbox

GP Supervisors Australia have developed a series of online learning modules aimed at helping GP supervisors  in various aspects of their work and training with GP registrars. Stay up to date on the release of more online learning modules through GPSA member communications. Become a GPSA member.

The Communication Toolbox was developed for GP Supervisors and Medical Educators to assist doctors, particularly those that had trained outside of Australia, to work in the Australian Healthcare system. This includes an appreciation of:

  • the organisational structures and systems in which we work
  • the learning and teaching techniques that we utilise
  • the cultural, societal and communication considerations that contribute to patient care

The Toolbox provides ideas and techniques, guidelines, readings, worksheets and references.

This resource was originally developed in 2008 by UNSW Rural Clinical School, Faculty of Medicine, under funding from Coast City Country GP Training.
