The RANZCO Advanced Clinical Examinations (RACE) Study (2021 - 2022)$50,000
Description
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) delivers a Vocational Training Program for future ophthalmologists. Training is primarily based on work-based learning. Both formative and summative assessments are used to assess trainees performance. The RANZCO Advanced Clinical Examinations (RACE) is the final hurdle for trainees before trainees begin a self directed learning program in their final year. RACE has clinical and written sections. Trainees need to pass both sections to commence their final year of training. Pass rates for both clinical and written components are declining. Pass rates directly influence the number of new ophthalmologists available to join the workforce and has significant implications for ophthalmic service delivery, particularly in regions and settings that are currently underserviced such as rural and remote areas. This study aims to understand why such a high proportion of RANZCO trainees fail RACE and to identify strategies to better support and prepare trainees for their exams.

RANZCO STP evaluation (2020 - 2021)$50,000
Description
Evaluation of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) Specialist Training Program (STP). The overarching aim of the evaluation is to improve the STP experience for trainees and supervisors and to increase the number of STP posts available in rural Australia. The primary objectives of the evaluation are to:Explore the issues faced by STP supervisors and the trainees rotated to STP posts Investigate how the STP program can be made more attractive to potential supervisorsHelp RANZCO and the training networks improve the existing STP postings for the trainees and their supervisors Inform the development of strategies to increase the number of ophthalmology STP posts, particularly in rural and regional Australia

Bowel Cancer Awareness in Tasmania: a pilot study (2019)$10,000
Description
Bowel cancer is the second most common cause of cancer in Australia after prostate cancer, and the second most common cause of cancer deaths after lung cancer. This is despite the fact that bowel cancer is one of the most preventable cancers through lifestyle risk factor modification and early detection. Levels of population knowledge and awareness around bowel cancer prevention, screening and symptoms is currently unknown. This study seeks to: determine bowel cancer knowledge and awareness in the overall Australian population; identify knowledge gaps in specific regions, and; identify determinants of poor bowel cancer knowledge.This will be achieved through a national survey using the validated Bowel Cancer Awareness Measures tool developed by the University College London and Cancer Research UK.Currently in Australia, there is limited research focusing on the awareness of risk factors, screening, and symptoms of bowel cancer. This study is the first to focus on gathering large population-level and spatial data across Australia concerning bowel cancer awareness. The findings from this research will be useful in identifying sub-groups of the population with insufficient awareness regarding bowel cancer risk factors, screening programme and warning signs, that will benefit from tailored educational intervention.
