New curriculum for junior doctors

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4408671.stm

In future, trainee doctors will have to demonstrate competence in areas such as communication and consultation skills, patient safety and team working.

The two-year training programme will include placements across a range of specialties and in primary, as well as secondary care.
I despair. :roll:

Why Ptp? Because they are being trained in these things or because they should already be trained in these things?

An 80 year woman married an 85-year-old PTP. After about six months together, the woman wasn't feeling well and she went to her doctor. The doctor examined and said, "Congratulations Mrs. Jones, you're going to be a mother."

"Get serious doctor, I'm 80."

"I know," said the doctor, "This morning, I would have said it was impossible, but this afternoon you are a medical miracle."

"I'll be darned," she replied and stormed out of the office. She walked down the hall and around the corner to where the telephones were. In a rage, she dialed her husband. "Hello" she heard in his familiar halting voice. She screamed, "You rotten SOB. You got me pregnant!"

There was a pause on the line. Finally, PTP answered, "Who's calling please?."

As I understand it, they already are trained in that sort of thing by the time they get to that stage. My sister is a 3rd year medical student (so something like 2-3 years before they get to the stage they're talking about) and she's doing all of those things right now.
Let me guess, another politician who doesn't know what they're talking about?

General Practitioners are supposed to go through a relicensing procedure on an annual basis.

From what I remember service pilots used to get mugged by a "trapper" or Qualified Helicopter Instructor, who would turn up on spec for a quick test flight to check on pilot's standards.

The BMA run a medical equivalent, unfortunately this one area of patient interface is one where the bar has been artificially lowered for some years now.

The reality is that the profession has taken too long to reconise this and only start to do something about it now.

Never mins, I'm sure they are responsible pillars of the community, :oops: don't you agree Dr Shipman??
