Teaching Practice of the Year

 

 

All of our doctors here at Partridge Street General Practice are fully qualified ‘Fellows’ (or are studying towards this) holding a specialist qualification with either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) or both (3-4 years of full time study and 3 exams on top of an undergraduate university medical degree and supervised trainee ‘intern’ year in a hospital). This is our minimum specialist standard and we may have other qualifications and skills.

Our Fellows provide supervision and advice to our Registrars and you may find that they are called in to consult with the Registrar on your case. ‘Registrars’ are qualified doctors who have completed their hospital training and are now embarking on their General Practice training. Some may already have other qualifications in medical or other fields.
We also supervise and teach Medical Students from Flinders University. They are still studying to become doctors. All of us – Fellows, Registrars, and Medical Students – make up the Clinical Team here at Partridge Street General Practice with our excellent Practice Nurses. We all uphold the highest standards of privacy, confidentiality, professionalism, and clinical practice.

New SA Health boss favours home care to reduce hospital pressure

General Practice and Partridge Street General Practice can do better than this! Get away from five, six, or ten minute medicine and enjoy better care. Primary Care is the most efficient and cost effective part of the health system and its time for patient rebates to align with this.

“If you’re too ill for your GP to (be treated) in a normal, you know, 10-minute business model of general practice you’ll end up in our public hospital system, and that’s just crazy,” McGowan told ABC Radio Adelaide this morning...

Better.

MyHR…. opt out, opt in or just ignore?

Dr Raines gives another perspective on My Health Record!

rain0021

In case you haven’t heard, you will have to decide whether you want to opt-out of the Government My Health Record (MyHR) before the 15 October 2018 or you will be have one created for you.

MyHR is a great idea.

MyHR allows your GP to write a shared health summary and collates data from a disparate number of sources. These will eventually include blood tests, radiology reports, medication and allergy lists and discharge summaries. It is also a spot where track immunisations and keep your achievement diary!

I have one. For those living in North Queensland and the Blue Mountains you probably already have one too. Didn’t you recall getting a note from the Government that you could opt out about 2 years ago. Don’t worry a lot of people didn’t hear you had to either. I use MyHR for my patients several times a week. “I take those little blue…

Today I am leaving my hat at the door – Dr Nicole Higgins

GPs wear many hats…sometimes we take them off 👍🏼

BridgeBuilders

I have a thing for Trilby’s. Old school. Usually pre-loved. I have quite a collection.

Wearing multiple hats becomes more common as we move up in the decision-making places of our careers. The good news – this creates a tapestry of knowledge and a depth of understanding, but it also increases the risks and conflicts of interest. One must become adept at treading lightly and not stepping on toes. Sometimes it feels like I am doing a clumsy ballet wearing steel cap boots.

We are more likely to find people in multiple roles when those people become important to organisations or groups due to their connections, skills and specific knowledge. That is exactly where potential conflicts of interest can do the most harm but also create an environment of collaboration. The difficulty is how to manage those real or perceived conflicts with transparency, openness and care. The challenge is how…

My Health Record: Former digital transformation head raises concerns about security of online system – Politics – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Alternative…Patients – #kickback edition

Thanks George Forgan-Smith 😉

 

 

It’s the week after the RACGP AKT and KFP exams for some and before a busy week for others. You may be a little flat and the world may seem a bit chaotic at the moment so I thought I’d take a minute to remind us all of how good we have it in Australian General Practice.

 

What are some of the little things your patients have done for you? (#kickbacks 8-)) These are three that come to mind for me:

 

 

 

Sugar free, too 👍👍👍

 

 

 

When the person I squeezed in for an appointment because they were ‘really ill’ stopped the consult to give me a (sugar free 👍) lolly when I was coughing at the end of a long day with lots of sniffling kiddies.

 

 

 

A Series of Unfortunate Events

 

 

 

A lovely painting I got for ‘mates rates’ after helping someone through a ‘series of unfortunate events’ (see the main picture!)

 

 

 

Needs banana for scale 🍌

 

 

 

3. A fantastic steak dinner cooked for me when I was spotted sneaking out of the practice clutching a bag of chips on a big on call night.

 

 

 

 

 

What little things have your patients done for you?

Take a moment to have a think and feel grateful – we really do have the best job in the world!  👍
