We have spoken with many GPs, trainees and students, who are interested in developing their knowledge work skills, to improve their clinical practice and support their career progression within wider professional roles.
You asked for some examples of what other GPs are doing, to help understand how they are developing their knowledge work skills. Several WiseGPs have shared their stories below, both as written reflections and through recorded interviews, to help provide some inspiration for your future practice.
If you have your own WiseGP story to share, please get in touch!
