New video for existing GP Educator Supervisors (GP ES) now available

A new video that offers voluntary top-up training to GPs who have already trained as educator supervisors is now available on Health Education England’s e-learning for healthcare Hub.

The resource provides an overview of the differences between a first contact practitioner and an advanced practitioner and also explains what masters level practice is and how it is evidenced in a portfolio.

The video also provides additional information for GP trainers to understand how best to support Allied Health Professionals moving into primary care at masters level of practice.

After viewing the video, learners will:

  • be able to understand masters level practice
  • gain understanding of allied health professionals’ offer to primary care and their specific roadmap
  • gain understanding of the background of the educational roadmaps and the advanced practice agenda
