The aim of this unit is to enhance understanding of underperformance in clinical practice and to be able to provide support to those whose skills are below the expected level. In this activity, you will work through case studies that could be encountered in primary practice.

Relevance to General Practice

Providing adequate training to general practitioners who would like to become medical educators is essential. Medical educators are looked to as a wealth of information and it is crucial they have the skills to pass on this knowledge and influence those around them to become quality general practitioners as this will benefit the practice, community and nation as a whole.
