Educational Conference 28 September 2018

South West Peninsula and Severn Postgraduate Medical Education programmes, on behalf of Health Education England, South West, will be holding their annual educational conference on 28th September 2018 at Taunton Racecourse. This year, given it is the 70th Birthday of the NHS, the conference will consider the journey of postgraduate medical education, where it is today and speculate on what it may look like in future.

There will also be a variety of workshops which will provide an opportunity to discuss topical issues, gain a greater understanding of PGME related subjects and support educator development. This year it is our intention that one of the workshops be trainee delivered.

The conference aims to be an enjoyable and valuable interactive experience for all those involved in clinical postgraduate medical education. It will be of particular interest to Associate Deans, GP Associate Directors, Regional Advisers, Heads of School, Training Programme Directors, Directors of Medical Education, Clinical Tutors, Foundation Leads and College Tutors, as well as Clinical and Educational Supervisors.

All the speakers have an interest and considerable experience on the areas they will be presenting and there will be an opportunity for interactive discussion and networking throughout the day.

CPD recognition with the Royal College of Physicians will be applied for.

Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. There will be no charge to those involved in educational roles in the footprint of Health Education England working across the South West. A programme will be available on this website shortly, but in the meantime registration for the Conference can be found on the link below.

AMPS Competencies Report

We (Julie Screaton (Director, London and the South East) and Professor Ged Byrne (Director of Education & Quality, Health Education England working across the North West)) are pleased to let you know that our survey of higher education institutions about embedding national antimicrobial prescribing and stewardship competences into curricula is now available to access on our website.

The antimicrobial prescribing and stewardship (AMPS) competences, produced jointly by the Government's expert advisory group for antimicrobial resistance and healthcare acquired infections (ARHAI), and Public Health England were published in 2013. Implementing these competences forms a key aspect of ‘Key area 3’ of the Government's five year strategy for tackling antimicrobial resistance - improving professional education, training and public engagement to improve clinical practice and promote wider understanding of the need for more sustainable use of antimicrobials. The antimicrobial prescribing and stewardship (AMPS) competences can provide clarity for regulators, education providers and professional bodies to inform standards, guidance and the development of training.

Undergraduate students have expressed interest in receiving more education about antimicrobials, especially about their multidisciplinary use. This survey asked higher education institutions about their awareness of the competencies, and how they had embedded them into their courses.

The results showed:

  • From the 45 universities that submitted information for a total of 100 health-related course 86% of universities confirmed they were aware of the national AMPS competencies.
  • Implementation of the five domains of the AMPS competencies showed that 91% of courses had embedded statements on infection prevention and control, 75% of courses for antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobials, 66.3% of courses for the prescribing of antimicrobials, 62% of courses for the prescribing of antimicrobials and 40% of courses for monitoring and learning.
  • Embedding of the AMPS competencies per professional group showed an average of 90% implementation for medicine, 82% for dentistry, 81% for pharmacy, 76% for independent non-medical prescribing courses, 52% for midwifery, 46% for nursing and 40.8% for allied health professionals.

We welcome the findings of this initial survey and hope best practices can be shared between higher health education institutions to enhance the adoption of these competencies. It has also highlighted the importance of non-medical prescribing courses adopting these competencies.

We would encourage you to:

  • implement the recommendations in this report on behalf of your organisations
  • raise awareness of these results within your organisations and networks
  • provide system leadership as individuals, groups and organisations in enhancing the adoption and implementation of the antimicrobial prescribing and stewardship (AMPS) competences within your academic and health networks and organisations, at both undergraduate and post-graduate level.

For further information please contact Mohamed Sadak (Clinical Lead and Programme Manager, Antimicrobial Resistance and Sepsis).

A Charter for Postgraduate Medical Training

The Academy Trainee Doctors' Group has produced 'A Charter for Postgraduate Medical Training' on behalf of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges. This Charter describes a set of guiding principles to ensure the highest standard of doctors’ training and quality of care. It also makes specific recommendations for commitments based on these principles which emphasise training priorities while recognising the responsibilities of doctors in training.

AOMRC Doctors in training

 The Charter was written in consultation with stakeholders including the medical royal colleges and faculties, the General Medical Council and the Shape of Training Expert Advisory Group. Professor David Greenaway’s report ‘Securing the future of excellent patient care: Final report of the independent review’ highlighted the Charter and its potential to help with the challenges of delivering both training and service. The Charter was published in full as an annex to this report.
We are currently sending the Charter to all groups involved in medical training and to doctors in training via Trainee representatives. You may well be contacted in this regard and we are expecting doctors in training to have further ideas on how to disseminate the charter (for example, by including it in induction or welcome packs).
We believe the Charter has the potential to provide an excellent foundation for delivering training and high quality care and I hope you will share our enthusiasm for this work.
