The Calman Report: does training matter to trainees?

  • Mark Evans (a1) and Christine Johnson (a2)
Abstract

One hundred and fourteen psychiatric trainees in the South Western region were canvassed by questionnaire concerning their knowledge of and attitudes towards the recommendations of Caiman Report, (DOH, 1993). Of the 78% of senior registrars and 80% of registrars who replied, the majority knew of the major recommendations mainly from reading articles and talking to colleagues. The 50% response rate from the senior house officers perhaps reflected a lack of knowledge and an erroneous perception that the report was of less relevance to them. The article reports responses to both structured questions concerning the facts, and comments received on more controversial aspects.
