AOGP has developed a national Quality Practice Network to support and promote the delivery of high-quality general practice through the use of:
AOGP provides practices with the tools to deliver best-quality health care, and the mechanisms to measure it.
(Practices can also propose their own benchmarking indicator).
Reports will be produced and disseminated to members on a regular basis.
As a member of AOGP’s Quality Practice Network, you will be able to access support to achieve accreditation requirements and quality improvement tools that go beyond accreditation standards. Whether you are using the 4th or 5th edition standards we can assist through access to benchmarking data to measure and respond to areas identified for improvement. We also can provide frameworks for clinical audit, CPD and a range of other tools and policies that will make your journey through accreditation easier and more valuable.
The Medical Board of Australia released their response to the revalidation discussion paper in late November 2017. The proposed Professional Performance Framework suggests areas to strengthen CPD requirements over the next couple of years, including through independent peer review. AOGP will be working with QPN practices to explore how this could work for all concerned, using the network to provide peer support as well as the quality framework to ensure peer review is safe and accredited for CPD purposes.
AOGP Job Match has been specifically designed for practices wanting to employ doctors, nurses and other staff, as well as for individuals seeking employment in General Practice.
The number of medical students graduating Australian Universities has tripled since 2001, and increased numbers of GPs are coming through Fellowship training pathways. It has become increasingly difficult for new GPs to find the practice that best meets their needs. AOGP’s Job Match is a uniquely useful database of individuals seeking to be matched with practices. This service is missing from the jobs boards of other services.
Practices and individuals upload their details and requirements via an online form, and the robust matching process of AOGP’s Job Match will return suggestions of best fit. The information entered includes, but is not limited to:
Connecting health professionals and staff in a relaxed forum, to discuss emerging issues with expert speakers.
Practice members receive complimentary attendance at networking events:
High-quality, relevant and interactive workshops, specifically designed with a GP focus.
Practice members receive 20% off CPD workshops and interactive online modules.
