Silver Chain delivers a comprehensive, community-based registrar training program.
The training is designed to provide registrars with a rich and diverse experience of medical care in the community, helping to create a medical workforce that supports community-based care programs.
The Silver Chain Palliative Care service allows patients to receive care in their home, rather than in a hospital, which has not only been demonstrated to provide better patient outcomes, but also a significant financial benefit for the Western Australian health sector. During the course of their placement, registrars are exposed to and perform a wide range of tasks and procedures, fully supported by an experienced clinical team.
Feedback received from doctors who have completed the training supports the value of community-based care as part of their training.
We are pleased to promote a healthy work/life balance with limited weekend and on-call work.
The registrar training program is supported by a structured educational environment including:
- specialist consultants and registrars
- a medically qualified Director of Clinical Training and Education
- Practice Manager
- specialist consultants in Home Hospital and Palliative Care
- a dynamic multi-disciplinary team, and
- weekly education sessions with supporting online modules
