Severn Postgraduate Medical Education actively encourages the identification and collation of good practice. We believe that the encouragement and communication of good practice helps affect positive culture change. We are also keen to evaluate the impact of the examples of good practice.
As defined within Section 127 of the GMC Quality Improvement Framework:
- Good practice includes areas of strength, good ideas and innovation in medical education and training
- Good practice should include exceptional examples which have potential for wider dissemination and development, or a new approach to dealing with a problem from which
other partners might learn
- Good practice is the sharing of good practice has a vital role in driving improvement, particularly in challenging circumstances.
Examples of good practice are now identified via a variety of routes including Contract visits and analysis of the GMC national training survey results (e.g. triple and quadruple national green outliers). They are recorded on the Quality Register.
All good practice is shared with the GMC and examples of good practice, approved by the GMC and linked to their new standards, include:
