Measuring the educational alliance with supervisors from the registrar perspective (GP-SRMR)
GPEx, in partnership with General Practice Training Tasmania (GPTT), General Practice Supervisors Australia (GPSA), and Monash University have completed their education research project funded through the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian Department of Health (DOH).
The research grant was awarded for a project that aimed to measure the educational alliance between a GP Supervisor and a GP Registrar from the perspective of the GP Registrar.
Following on from the successful work of GPTT, GPSA and Monash University to develop the GP Supervisory Relationship Measure for Supervisors (GP-SRMS), the GP Supervisory Relationship Measure for Registrars (GP-SRMR) project has successfully adapted and validated a complementary tool to explore the relationship from the registrar’s perspective.
Using computer adaptive testing the number of questions in both the GP-SRMS and GP-SRMR can be reduced substantially whilst still maintaining their validity and reliability.
Representatives of the project partners conducted a consultation with Registrar Liaison Officers (RLOs) at their national conference in August 2018 to gain registrar feedback on how the GP-SRMR and the GP-SRMS might best be used in practise.
The GP Supervisor Relationship Measure tool developed as a result of this research can be found here.
This research project is supported by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners with funding from the Australian Government under the Australian General Practice Training Program.
