GP Synergy is required to report to the RACGP any critical incidents or adverse events that occur during training. These critical incidents may be registrar, supervisor or practice incidents.
The RACGP’s Reporting Critical Incidents and Adverse Events – Guidance Document defines these as:
- Adverse event: any event which causes disruption to an organisation, creates significant danger or risk or where registrars, supervisors, practice staff, regional training organisation staff, or patients feel unsafe, vulnerable or under stress.
- Critical incident: an adverse event resulting in serious harm.
If GP Synergy assesses an incident as a critical incident to be reported to the RACGP the registrar will be notified prior to reporting.
