(Clinical and Healthcare Improvement through My Health Record Usage and Education in General Practice).
We are coming up to webinar 3 for phase II of our exciting research study in general practice - the CHIME GP study. With over 50 GPs participating from across Australia, including urban, regional and remote, as well as one GP from the RFDS, we are learning a lot about incorporating best practice guidelines into everyday general practice. This study, which garners 40 accredited RACGP CPD points (and ACRRM PD equivalent), looks at potential change in GP behaviour both before and after education around de-prescribing and rational use of pathology and diagnostic imaging ordering. The education also incorporates use of My Health Record (MHR) in an everyday clinical setting to assist GPs in avoiding duplicate or unnecessary tests, preventing the pitfalls of polypharmacy, and improving delivery of patient-centred care.
The education is blended, combining online learning with interactive live webinars using real world case studies, and a reflective activity which includes a clinical audit. The education has been very well received thus far, with lively and engaging discussions and debates during our live webinars. We have run 6 webinars since the start of June.
There is still time for you to join us! We are currently recruiting GPs to participate in our second round of education which will be delivered from September to November 2020.
Hurry - space is limited! In addition to the accredited CPD points, there is a $200 ex GST payment to GPs who complete the education activities.
