The older patient, the general practitioner and the trainee: patients attitudes and implications for training
Education for Primary Care, 07/18/2012
Bonney A et al. – There is the potential to develop models of trainee chronic/complex care that maintain older patient satisfaction and retain the favourable patient outcomes associated with interpersonal continuity. Strengthening interpersonal continuity of care with the patient's usual GP around trainee consultations, and open communication regarding having trainees involved in their care, appear key to such models. Further research involving prospective trials is required.
