Higher Professional Education for General Practitioners is a practical guide on the best ways to plan educational and vocational training needs throughout professional practice. It clearly outlines the underlying issues surrounding the introduction of higher professional education (HPE) enabling newly qualified professionals to focus on areas that they feel less competent in, and areas that require additional training. In an easy-to-read format it provides all the necessary information to assist readers undertaking HPE, and for all those setting up educational programmes for newly qualified GPs in the first year after their vocational training scheme.
