Training health professionals – an invaluable Clinical Skills Assessment training tool

Videoing of consultations, regularly reviewed throughout the year, is the ideal way to help develop trainees in the health sector in the key areas of data management, clinical management and interpersonal skills.

However many practices struggle with difficult to use equipment, which means cameras don’t get switched on, or difficult editing means footage doesn’t get reviewed.

And all too often patients are uncomfortable with intrusive cameras set on tripods at the end of the couch or cameras with wires running to television screens or recorders.

GBSG have developed a unique GP skills training video production solution, which harnesses remote CCTV monitoring technology that is more usually found in surveillance situations. It provides a discreet solution for patients, whilst optimising review and editing capability, to ensure that trainees derive the most from the exercise, including sound-only recording – all at the flick of a simple wall switch.

The system can be managed remotely in a dedicated review and edit room, or managed unobtrusively within the consulting room.

How it works:

1 Health professional starts consultation and turns on the system.

2 As consultation takes place discreet green lights indicate which part of the system are in operation.

3 Filming and sound recording both take place through unobtrusive wall-mounted modules.

4 If an examination is necessary the health professional can simply flick turn off the camera so recording is sound only.

5 When the consultation is complete a simple button stops all recording.

6 Playback and review is easily undertaken and allows input from the doctor’s mentor.

7 Records of consultations are easily stored and retrieved.

8 It is easy to review and compare sessions to monitor progress.
