Practice-based small group learning (PBSGL) is an established approach for continuing professional development (CPD) for GPs in Scotland. This paper describes an extension of the PBSGL approach to support the learning and development of educational supervisors from both hospital and general practice, working together in peer-facilitated small groups to address topic-specific, evidence-based educational modules. Four groups met on three occasions each and qualitative data were gathered from interviews with the facilitators and the participants. This was supplemented with observational data of the group process and function. Both GPs and consultants enjoyed the format and were very positive about the experience of working together in this way. Commitment to change educational practice and reported actual changes in practice were evident.
