A4: Training the generalist – a transformative approach to healthcare training and delivery
Dr Jonathan Corne
Dr Ben Pearson
Dr Katherine Packham
- Understanding generalism in terms of a broad approach to disease but also the wider determinants of ill-health.
- To gain an appreciation of how social advocacy/social medicine training be can incorporated into generalist and specialty programs
- To understand the service benefits of the generalist and how the ‘specialty of generalism’ can be promoted.
Giving healthcare workers the skills to influence the socio-economic causes of ill health, as well as managing a wide range of disease, could be transformative. Using our experience of working with partners to develop a Generalist School we will explore the meaning of generalism, potential training models and the benefits to healthcare.
