Improving Performance

If a concern about a trainee’s progress is raised by a Term Supervisor they are advised to refer to the local escalation pathways and resources, and seek the support of the DCT and Medical Education Unit. The DCT may require your assistance to provide structure, and follow up with the trainee throughout the year using tools such as performance improvement plans.

If a matter relates to Cultural safety, or Indigenous Health, then consider partnering with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health professionals to support the performance improvement. Your health service may have specific units or individuals dedicated to this purpose, and if not, consider how you may advocate for them to do so.

The following resources will support MEOs in improving performance of prevocational doctors:

Cultural Safety

All health professionals role-model cultural safety in practice. It is your role to continually improve your understanding of cultural safety, to engage the skills and expertise of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health professionals in your work, and to seek professional development opportunities related to cultural safety. Your workplace may have an Aboriginal Health Unit or Aboriginal Liaison Services.
