    2020: What a year it’s been!

    2020: What a year it’s been!

    What a year it’s been.  As 2020 draws to a close, I will not even attempt to comment on what has been a most extraordinary year, except to say that we would like to salute the RVTS Registrars, supervisors and staff for their courage and perseverance, their passion and understanding, their strength and commitment and their support for each other.  We acknowledge the uncertainty and the sacrifices of 2020, in all its forms, and the character shown in overcoming every obstacle that has come your way.

    Aboriginal Health

    Aboriginal Health

    As we observed NAIDOC Week in November, many RVTS registrars and staff used the opportunity to attend (mainly online) events to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  RVTS Acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands and seas on which we live and work, and pays respect to elders: past, present and future.  Events during NAIDOC week remind us about our commitment to consider a First Nation perspective in all training activities at RVTS.
    As you may be aware, according to the strategic plan of RVTS, the purpose of RVTS is to improve Australian health by training and retaining medical practitioners working in Rural, Remote and First Nation communities by facilitating access to medical education and training in circumstances where it may otherwise not be possible, providing flexibility and innovation in meeting the medical training needs of diverse communities, and, as mentioned, to consider a First Nation perspective in everything we do.

    Rational Pathology

    Rational Pathology

     “Rational pathology emanates from a rational doctor”.  Pathology is useful in assisting with coming to a diagnosis, monitoring patients and for screening.  Unnecessary tests can cause harm to patients and add significantly to health costs, so considering carefully what pathology we order is vitally important in General Practice.
    In this month’s post, we listen in on the discussion with Dr Mike Eaton during a webinar with some of the second year GP registrars.

    Tools to improve competency and exam success

    Tools to improve competency and exam success

    We’re always looking for ways to be better GPs, and to improve our success in fellowship exams. We’ve previously discussed some tools… and here are 2 more: Random Case Analysis and Role Play.
    Role play and random case analysis can be used in training and as part of supervisor discussions, and can actually be quite fun, while mastering important skills. Choosing a random case and discussing it, considering the various competencies that were required in the consultation, and role playing to practice incorporating some suggestions can be a very beneficial exercise.

    A Case of Management Dilemma

    A Case of Management Dilemma

    Being brilliant at the basics will come in handy when there are no clinical pathways or algorithms that apply to the patient in front of you. This was the take home message from the second case at the 3rd annual RVTS Grand Round Webinar.

    A Case of Diagnostic Error

    A Case of Diagnostic Error

    RVTS recently hosted the 3rd annual RVTS Grand Round Webinar. 
    We were delighted to be joined by Art Nahill and Nic Szecket from IMReasoning, amongst others,  who discussed a case in the form of a “cognitive autopsy” - with all the benefits of hindsight.  The discussion highlights that diagnostic errors occur surprisingly commonly!
