What is a QI Advanced Course?
The GPCE QI Advanced Course (quality improvement) is a 5-hour program which encourages GPs to take a deep dive into the management of a therapeutic area in their practice, with a focus on real behavioural change. GPs are given an opportunity to identify their learning gaps as they embark on practical education, both face-to-face and online. On completion, they will evaluate their anticipated change in behaviour to reinforce learning.
How is the QI Advanced Course delivered?
The QI Advanced Course is a 5-hour program, delivered in a blended learning format. After completing a pre-learning activity GPs will engage in 3 hours of practical, face-to-face group learning at a GPCE conference, followed by 2 hours of education online. Finally, a post-activity exercise will allow GPs to evaluate their anticipated behaviour change.
Why are we delivering a QI Advanced Course through blended learning?
Blended learning which combines face-to-face and online education, allows GPs to engage in the 40-point session using a more flexible learning approach. GPs can choose from a GPCE conference in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane or Melbourne. Following this, they can complete the online education at their own pace. The blended learning model also allows GPs to choose the QI 40-point session and other education during a GPCE conference, to give them their full 130 CPD points for the triennium.
