The FRACGP exams assess the competence to practice in unsupervised clinical general practice. The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) assesses clinical competence, focussing on performances of specific key skills. Cases must be reflective of the RACGP Curriculum for Australian General Practice 2016, and relevant to Australian general practice.
This ALM trains OSCE examiners and GP educators how to write OSCE cases in a way that provides a good discrimination of candidate performance. Cases are based on actual patient encounters and actual de-identified clinical data.
To enable individual feedback during the ALM, registrations are strictly limited, and are open to RACGP Fellows only.
To complete this ALM and be eligible to get your 40 category 1 QI&CPD points:
- Pre-workshop: complete the online case writing activity on gplearning and prepare three case outlines on approved clinical topics, one of which will be chosen for the workshop
- Workshop: further develop the chosen case, engage in peer review, and respond to feedback (4 hours)
- Post-workshop: action the feedback and suggestions received from case reviewers (2 hours)
- Post-workshop: have one case finalised and approved by the case reviewers
- Post-workshop: complete the reflective activity for this ALM
After this ALM, participants will be able to:
- Define current General Practice Fellowship standards, including issues related to patient safety
- Possess a basic understanding of the assessment theory that underpins assessment of competence to practise unsupervised in Australia
- Clarify components of soundly defined and worded cases that can be used to accurately measure performance of exam candidates against the standards identified
- Produce exam cases that meet the RACGP standards and can be used in the RACGP exam process.
