|Abstract:||Background: Whether general practitioner (GP) registrars have adequate exposure to, and feel confident in, managing children's health during training is unknown. Objectives: To determine the prevalence and associations of GP registrars' paediatric vs. non-paediatric consultations. Methods: Cross-sectional analysis from a cohort study of Australian GP registrars' 2010-2014 consultations. Results: 889 registrars contributed details for 26,427 (21.8% (95% CI: 21.4-22.2) paediatric consultations. Paediatric patients were more likely to be male and new to the practice. Although paediatric patients were less likely to have a chronic disease (OR 0.38, 95% CI 0.36, 0.40) and presented with fewer problems (OR 0.59, 95% CI 0.57, 0.61), registrars were more likely to seek in-consultation advice (OR 1.25, 95% CI 1.19, 1.31) and generate learning goals (OR 1.12, 95% CI 1.07, 1.18) for paediatric consultations. Discussion: GP registrars appear to feel less confident in managing paediatric compared with adult consultations, suggesting an unmet training need.|
