8 barriers - exercise position clinical education in context organisation

9 evaluation themes (2009 & 2010) Orientation to roles Registrar ‘take the time to adjust to a change from the often very structured clinical role … learn how to structure your own time – it can be challenging initially but it was a valuable experience [R09.1] ‘it took me a significant part of the year to identify people at a senior level who had an interest in education’ [R09.5] ‘adequate…whilst being given enough autonomy to explore and discover avenues on my own [R10.5] ‘give the Registrar permission to have 3 months to simply find their feet … they very quickly find themselves with more than enough to do’ [S10.2]

10 Orientation to roles Supervisor lack of role clarity; lack of knowledge - ‘to determine the degree of supervision, uncertainty about the supervision I could/ was providing …’ [S09.3] ‘clarify [the supervisor] role from the outset. Have clear goals for the Registrar and continue to reinforce those goals. Meet regularly and frequently both informally and formally’ [S09.1]

11 Clinical service – education tension ‘when resources are tight the first thing to be sacrificed is education [R09.2] ‘completed the year with 2 important insights; the service – education tension and the challenges for educators, the complexity of educational program development and conduct from operational issues of scheduling, rosters and room bookings to [educational design and the importance of] alignment of learning objectives, activities and assessment [R10.5]

12 Formal educational studies ‘the studies have deepened my interest and understanding in learning and education and have been the backbone to my job’ [R09.2] ‘the university studies I thought excellently supplemented what I was trying to apply at the coalface’ [R10.1] ‘I found the [course] challenging and rewarding however a significant proportion of semester one was not applicable to education for post- graduate health professionals. It would be interesting to see if other [courses] provided a more clinical focus’ [R10.5]

13 Registrar – supervisor relationship ‘having informal and regular access to my supervisor was important as a means of debrief [and] useful feedback when trying different approaches’ [R09.3] [a supervisor who was] ‘enthusiastic, encouraging, available, and involved …and reigned in my enthusiasm’ [R09.4] ‘… seeing the amazing things the registrars were capable of doing. I learned so much’ [S10.2] ‘lack of time to adequately supervise, ‘invariably the supervisor position is fractional and thus I was pulled in many directions at once’ [S10.2]

14 what next … ‘I plan to make medical education an integral component of my long term career’ [R09.5], ‘to progress on a vocational pathway but endeavour to continue education, particularly involving simulation’ [R10.1]

15 enhancers Factors drawn from their experiences that enhanced the position’s success included: orientation to the roles of registrar and supervisor early negotiation of the project scope and direction the educational studies and opportunity to apply the theory in practice, shared by registrars and supervisors registrar – supervisor collaborative working relationship with sufficient time to meet, discuss and problem-solve.
