The star of general practice and development of a new curriculum framework

Combining the domains of general practice with lifelong learning provides a powerful conceptual framework for positioning the 2011 curriculum in the Australian clinical context in which the knowledge and skills are applied. This can be represented as the ‘star of general practice’ (Figure 3).

The framework enables educators to train GPs across the diverse and wide range of clinical presentations, which vary according to social, demographic, cultural and epidemiological circumstances.

Even though local practice characteristics, regional clinical trends or national characteristics may vary, this model provides a common ground for the essential discipline of general practice knowledge across the learning life cycle and domains of general practice.
