Expressions of interest – off-site supervision, casual role (0.1 FTE)

We are expanding our off-site supervision team and seeking expressions of interest for off-site supervisors.

This role will work across the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services within MCCC’s footprint.

This role is mainly remote, with virtual delivery of most activities and offers a high degree of flexibility.

The primary responsibilities of this role may include:

  • Off-site supervision (identify learnings need, provide mentoring support and feedback) especially in the Aboriginal health context.
  • Formal registrar teaching for a GPT3 (if not delivered by the principle/home practice)
  • Direct observation visit (may be required face to face)

An individualised MCCC activity plan will be developed for posts requiring immediate off site supervision support. This activity plan will outline specific activities with allocated hours.

A history or work in the Aboriginal health sector is required and training for offsite supervision will be available.

Remuneration is at the MCCC Supervisor rate of pay and travel allowances are in line with MCCC’s travel policy.

For further information please email Angelina Salamone, Director of Medical Education and Training or alternatively direct your expression of interest (including expanding on your skills, experience and interest in this role) and your CV to People and Culture by end June 2021.

Supervisors and a GP trainee speak with Dr Paul Grinzi about their experiences starting out in a new role, in the June 2021 edition of SuperCast.

Paid support for ACRRM supervisors – Case Based Discussion preparation

There are resources available to support supervisors of ACRRM trainees in ACRRM-accredited practices to assist them in gathering and preparing cases.

These resources include:

  • MCCC’s online CBD module available on MeL

and funding for:

  • completing the MCCC online module on MEL about CBD
  • face-to-face tutorials for 2 x 1 hour blocks.

We are having an MCCC Medical Educator review the cases prior to submission to ACRRM and so supporting ACRRM trainees and supervisors in gathering and preparing cases.

Finance processes a one-off payment to the practice of $300 ($60 for completing the MeL module and $240 payment for 2 x 1hr tutorials).

Changes to Supervisor Reports in SWAN

Supervisor Reports for the Initial Assessment (IA), Further Assessments (FA) and Term 3 Assessment (T3A) are due by week 6 of the 2021.1 semester. Registrars value your feedback and so we recommend you consider doing some direct observation of registrars you are supervising, regardless of their training level.

There will now be a section within the Supervisor Report for you to record your feedback on the consultations observed, so that both you and your registrar can refer to it.

The consultation feedback section will look like the below and further information about the changes will be provided to you in the new year.

Please see here for 2021.1 Initial Assessment, Further Assessment and Term 3 Assessment dates.

Update for supervisors of training term 2 registrars in 2021

We are trialing a registrar self-refection (SRT) and practice feedback tool (PFT) as part of the Further Assessment for this cohort, replacing the practice manager report.

Full details of the steps required for this new process are available in the IA/FA/T3A guidance document.

Summary of FA steps:

  • The registrar completes a self-reflection on MeL
  • The practice manager is sent a link to the feedback tool on MeL and shares it with 4 other staff members to complete (recommended: two clinical staff, not including other registrars or supervising GPs)
  • The registrar is sent a collated, anonymous report of PFT by MCCC in week 7
  • The registrar discusses the PFT with the PM and/or supervisor and completes a validation on MeL
  • Any concerns that cannot be managed at the practice level are to be discussed with the RHE
  • The training advisor will ensure that the discussion has taken place and will liaise with the registrar at approx. week 10.

Further information about the above steps will be issued to practices in 2021 and we welcome feedback from practices regarding the trial FA format.
