MALT for JDocs

/for-health-professionals/audits-and-surgical-research/morbidity-audit-and-logbook-tool/jdocs/

Find a surgeon

The Find a Surgeon directory is a listing of active Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons who meet the requirements of the College's Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program and have opted to be on the list. This list excludes retired or inactive Fellows.

 

In February 2016, MALT was launched to JDocs (Junior Doctors subscribing to JDocs). For more information on subscription: http://jdocs.surgeons.org/subscribing-jdocs

Visit the JDocs website for more information.

Usage

Optional as a self-assessment tool for those subscribed to JDocs.

Logbooks

Subscribed JDocs are allocated a JDocs logbook to record their surgical exposure/experience.

Supervisors

MALT uses the terms Nominated Supervisor and Alternate Supervisor. Supervisors can view cases for the JDocs they are supervising and can provide comments on specific cases.

Note: The College does not allocate Supervisors to JDocs as part of the JDocs program.

Nominated Supervisor: Only one Nominated Supervisor can be selected. JDocs may not have a supervisor and are therefore able to select "N/A Supervisor" from the list of available names.

Alternate Supervisor(s): Can be anyone from the surgical unit that is present in theatre.

Procedures

As the JDocs logbook supplements the JDocs framework, there is not a list of procedures that are required to be completed. However, the basic and intermediate constructs (as outlined in the Essential Surgical Skills) are provided as preferred terms.

For cases where more than one surgical procedure has been undertaken, MALT allows multiple procedures to be recorded.

Approval Process

Different MALT logbooks have different workflows.  The JDocs logbook cases move through a workflow progression of "Draft" to "Completed": 

  1. Fill in and save the case (Draft).
  2. Cases can be marked as Complete (Completed).
  3. The Logbook Summary Report (LSR) and the "All Logged Procedures" reports can be generated from the reports section in MALT.
