Hospital Generalists and CMOs Future Options

Join an exciting new discussion about how Hospital Generalist Medical Practitioners and other Career Medical Officers can work together to explore a College dedicated to the needs of this cohort. Hospital medicine is the art of bridging the gaps. The gaps between multiple sub specialties, the gaps between hospital and community, the gaps between hospital and General Practice. This area of medicine is not new.. There are Career Medical Officers, Senior Medical Officers, Senior Hospital Medical Officers, and perennial RMOs all over Australia Increasingly, with the gap between graduates and training positions, there are more occupying this space. Hospital generalists work in Hospitalists roles, emergency departments, and many specialty clinics and areas. They bring an alternate view to their specialist colleagues, and work collaboratively across the spectrum to aid in improving patient care and outcomes. They have always been well trained, although often in an ad hoc manner, seeking out training and experiences to complement any potential gaps in expertise. There are recognised university training programs for them. And they want to welcome any new graduates to an alternative perspective on medical care. If you are interested in being involved in this exciting development, join us on Sunday 12th November prior to the Australian and New Zealand Prevocational Medical Education Forum (ANZPMEF).

SESSION OVERVIEW

Directors of Training report that one of the most challenging aspects of their role is managing and supporting trainees identified as experiencing difficulties.

In this masterclass, Directors of Training will have the opportunity to share and learn from each other, as experienced facilitators, Dr Jo Burnand and Dr James Edwards lead you through a discussion of two complex cases.

You will deliberate upon challenges such as: what to do when a trainee identified as having performance issues makes a counter allegation of bullying or harassment against their clinical supervisor; escalates conversations through involving lawyers or professional bodies; or where you have serious concerns about trainee safety and wellbeing.

An expert panel has been assembled to share their perspectives and whilst we can’t promise to have all the answers, we will guarantee (with your help) a robust and highly interactive discussion.

The audience will also have the opportunity to view the recently updated Trainee in Difficulty, (3rd Edition, 2017), published by the NSW Health Education

Please click here to complete the form before the conference and bring ten copies (per facility) with you on the afternoon of the special interest group. Further information on the speed networking activity can be found on the last page of this document.

Speed Networking – how it works

Purpose: Opportunity to network with other Medical Education professionals, helping to form relationships and share ideas to encourage ‘Singing from the same song sheet: teamwork’.

 Objectives:

  • Build relationships with other Medical Education Units/Professionals
  • Discover shared goals, projects or issues
  • Reduce “reinventing the wheel” to drive networking and efficiencies across MEUs

Preparation for Speed Networking – Attendees

  • The benefit of speed networking is that you can get right to the point. Ensure you have completed your facility profile document and have considered how to deliver the information in the given timeframe
  • Make sure you have a supply of your facility overview documentation and any other documentation you may wish to provide. Sometimes people find it useful to take something tangible away to review and process the information 

Speed Networking – In Action

Each Medical Education Unit will present their project/activity using the template to guide the conversation. A total of 7 minutes will be allocated and a warning will be provided at half time to give everyone in the group an opportunity to talk.

Set up – 2 x circles with facilities, with inside teams to move around.
