We began our new Placement Quality (PQ) Initiative in August 2018 – being led by Dr Sally Anne Phillips as Associate Dean for Placement Quality in conjunction with PQ ADEPT Fellow. The first phase of work on the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Programme was completed in March 2019 with publication of an interim Report and an Update in November 2019. There are 4 written end-products:
1. A promotional information leaflet about Training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in NI
2. A Prospectus for all the O&G training units in NI
3. An An Interim Summary Report on the O&G Placement Quality Review (March 2019)
4. Final Report on the Placement Quality Review of O&G Training (November 2019) – Update and Trainee feedback by Trust and Hospital site
A resurvey of O&G training placements was carried out in January 2020 to review the progress made in addressing the key recommendations from the initial O&G Placement Quality Reports (March/November 2019). The O&G 2020 Resurvey Reports are below, summarised by Trust; these highlight improvements made to the O&G training experience and areas where further development is needed.
