Delivered online as two half-day workshops in a virtual classroom, the PA supervision workshops will give learners time to assimilate the skills, knowledge and behaviours discussed in workshop 1 into their practice which can then be further explored in workshop 2. The half day workshops will run from 9:30am to 12:30pm and from 1:30pm to 5:00pm.
The training will be facilitated by a member of RCP clinical faculty; a senior consultant or PA with expertise in the field of supervision alongside an RCP educationalist who brings educational expertise.
Workshop 2: Supervising Physician Associates
- describe the key elements of the PA appraisal process
- summarise the key features of the Physician Associate toolkit for appraisal
- explain the format and structure of Physician Associate portfolios
- describe key features of Physician Associate progression and careers.
Suitable for senior or lead PAs tasked with providing ‘educational supervision’ to junior PAs; other AHPs with supervisory responsibilities for PAs and doctors with supervisory responsibilities for PAs.
The half-day workshops will run at least twice a year with both workshops in one day, either side of the HS financial year-end to ensure that PAs can get suitable funding and study leave if needed.
Each half-day workshop will cost £150, with early bird and member discount available. PAs will have the option of attending the 2 x half days at different times to make study leave and funding possible in all cases.
