Research Study – Supervising GP registrars – who does and doesn’t participate and why

General Practice Training Tasmania (GPTT) in partnership with General Practice Supervisors Australia (GPSA) and Monash University invite you to participate in a study designed to better understand the reasons why general practitioners (GPs) do or don’t supervise GP Registrars in rural areas of Tasmania and why.

This study will be the first systematic analysis of GPs participating in registrar supervision and what underpins their decision to participate.

This project will help to understand Tasmania’s current and future GP supervisor workforce training support needs locally and nationally to ensure there are enough GP Supervisors to meet training demand within the AGPT program into the future.

Your insights along with those of fellow supervisors and non-supervisors will be sought to inform a set of findings that GPTT and other RTO’s can use as a blueprint of future incentives and supports to sustain GP supervisor engagement into the future.

We know your time is valuable. Participants will be given a $200 gift card which will be sent to nominated address on completion of a 45 minute interview. All participant data will be de-identified upon collection.

Interviews will take place between December 2017 and 31 March 2018.

More information can be found in the Participant Explanatory Statement here. If you would like to participate in research that could directly benefit you in your role as a GP supervisor please email or phone 03 5440 9077.
