The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) is developing online learning modules to support the professional development of GP registrars and GP trainers.
Once complete, GPs will be able to tackle 20 and 30 minute learning objective tasks online that aim to support their “continuing professional development”.
The initial online phase focuses on a few key areas but the project is set to cover the whole GP curriculum in due course.
Focus groups to communicate GP trainers and trainee feedback are also in the pipeline.
Chair of the RCGP Postgraduate Training Board Dr Bill Reith said: “The aim of the project is to support training by offering a flexible resource that can be accessed anywhere at any time and followed at the learner’s own pace.
“The e-modules are intended to support lifelong professional learning and development and we hope they will be a useful resource for both trainees and established GPs alike.”
The first e-modules are set to become live August 2008.
