Feedback and Assessment

At the middle and end of placement GP Supervisors are asked to undertake a formal assessment of the doctor in training’s performance. These assessments are completed on WAGPET elearning and a completion email is generated to the doctor in training, you the supervisor and to WAGPET. The registrar has direct access to the completed assessment on their WAGPET elearning pages.

As the aim of the mid term assessment is a formative or appraisal type process, it is recommended that GP Supervisors discuss the assessment with the doctor in training and include this as one of the in practice education sessions.

To be able to complete this assessment appropriately you are encouraged to have multiple sources of information about the doctor in training. This might be from case reviews and discussion, audits, your direct observation or video consultation review sessions, contact during opportunistic teaching and supervision times, patient survey information, and feedback from colleagues, other health professionals and staff. For ACRRM registrars you may even have the data from their Multi-Source Feedback (MSF) to consider.

The end of term assessment combines both a formative (appraisal) process as well as acting a summative process that informs WAGPET that the doctor in training is progressing as expected through the training program. Although there is a summative assessment component you are strongly encouraged to again discuss the assessment with the doctor in training and include this as one of the in practice education sessions

These processes are part of the performance monitoring of the doctor in training and are valuable for the doctor for focused individual feedback and learning planning, but also for identifying if any more intensive support or supervision is required

More information on the process for providing specific additional support is included in Remediation.
