General Practice Clinical Learning Environment (GPCLE)

Why structure a learning environment?

Structuring a learning environment creates consistency of practice, improves patient safety, and helps both the supervisor and registrar know what is expected of them. It enables GP supervisors to utilise the whole context to promote learning. It allows practices to plan for, establish, and regularly appraise the quality of their learning environment for improved educational outcomes.

What is the GPCLE?

The GPCLE is a holistic and evidence-based framework to guide the development of best practice clinical learning environments in general practice. The framework is particularly applicable for new teaching practices, new supervisors and for benchmarking and planning quality improvement for existing practices.

The GPCLE framework comprises six elements, 19 objectives, and 53 descriptors of quality.
