Abstract

B a c k g ro u n d : Th e n ew G P c u r r i c u l um emp h a s i s e s consultation skills that are essential to enhance doctorpatient communications. A im: To g a t h e r d a t a o n s e l f re p o r t i n g r a t i n g s o n consultation skills, within a group of VTS trainees. Summary of work: Trainees were invited to a training day, where consultation training was provided. Trainees self rated their perceived levels of a range of consultation skills before and after training (an adapted Kirkpatrick framework). Data were analysed using an SPSS version 4 package. Summary of results: Self reporting by VTS trainees on thei r consul t a t ions s k i l l s indi c a te low level s of perceived skills. Significant differences in improved rating in a variety of areas after training were seen in: (1) Understanding the consultation structure; (2) Coni dence in performing a consultation; (3) Framework for approaching a consultation; (4) Identifying their weakness in consultation skills; (5) Improved sense of competence in conducting a consultation. No dif erences were found in applying knowledge and skills required for a consultation, which may relate to the current level of experience and context in which the trainee currently practices; nor the ability to identify their weaknesses, which will require further training. Conclusion: Consultation skills training may improve how trainees perceive their skills at an early stage of training for general practice
