The GMC is updating its expectations of newly qualified doctors in the UK: reviewing the Outcomes for graduates

A revised Outcomes for Graduates has been produced - see above - I have gone through and highlighted the sections of text that specifically reference sustainable healthcare and environmental issues.

The consultation asks some general and specific questions about the revised outcomes. I have attempted to condense the questions below. Please do comment and add your thoughts on how SHE should respond to the consultation.

"Are there things missing or things that shouldn’t be
included?

Q5. Do you think the draft outcomes set out the knowledge, skills, values and
behaviour that patients and the public expect of newly qualified doctors
entering the profession?

Q6. Do you think the draft outcomes set out the knowledge, skills, values and
behaviour that employers need from newly qualified doctors entering the
workplace and the Foundation Programme?

Q7. Do you think the outcomes set out, at the right level and in the right
detail, what newly qualified doctors must know and be able to do in relation to
their responsibility for patient safety?

Q8. Do you think the outcomes set out, at the right level and in the right
detail, what newly qualified doctors must know and be able to do in relation to
their responsibilities for equality and diversity?

Q9. Do you think we have sufficiently addressed the need for newly qualified
doctors to be able to provide care in a variety of settings?

Q10. Do you think we have sufficiently addressed the need for newly qualified
doctors to be able to care for patients with multiple morbidities and long term
physical and mental conditions?

The structure of the outcomes
We could structure the outcomes to match the nine domains of our Generic professional
capabilities framework, which sets out the capabilities and education outcomes for
postgraduate training in medicine. Linked to this consultation is a version of the
outcomes, which is structured to match the nine domains.

Q13. Do you think we should structure the outcomes to match the nine
domains of the Generic professional capabilities framework?

Q14. Do you think we should update the outcomes approximately every two
years, to reflect changes in medical education and medical care and practice?

Q15. Please give any suggestions on how, and how often, we should update
the outcomes.
