Project Description

CREATE will use a participatory process to co-design and test innovations to optimise general practice training at two critical times- in hospital experience and in the transition to the first GP term.
The work will build upon and leverage support from TROPHI - a new RACGP initiative in outer Eastern Melbourne.
TROPHI (funded by the Windermere Foundation until 2026) represents a formal collaboration between the RACGP and Departments of General Practice at Monash University and the University of Melbourne.
In collaboration with a hospital network, a Primary Health Network and two Advanced Health Research and Translation Centres, TROPHI drives high quality implementation and translational research that provides contemporary practice-based evidence to improve primary health care and patient outcomes in the outer Eastern Melbourne region of Victoria, and subsequently, nationally.
CREATE will leverage the infrastructure and relationships of TROPHI to codesign innovative approaches appropriate for scale up to other, contextually relevant, settings.
Our hypothesis is that co-designed enhancements to training for GP registrars during hospital based and early general practice training can optimise educational experience, enhance learning, and improve work life.

Our project will leverage the initiatives, infrastructure and relationships of TROPHI to deliver innovative approaches that are appropriate for scale up to other, contextually relevant settings.

Our hypothesis is that co-designed enhancements to training for GP registrars during hospital based and early general practice training can optimise educational experience, enhance learning, and improve the work life of GP Registrars.

Our research questions are:
• For registrars training to be general practitioners in Outer Eastern Melbourne, what strategies can be implemented to improve a) the primary care appropriateness of hospital based training? and b) the educational experience of the first general practice term?
• How should these strategies be tailored to facilitate translation to other regions within Australia?
