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.
Optional as a self-assessment tool for those subscribed to
Subscribed JDocs are allocated a JDocs logbook to record their
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.
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.
Different MALT logbooks have different workflows. The
JDocs logbook cases move through a workflow progression of "Draft"
- Fill in and save the case (Draft).
- Cases can be marked as Complete (Completed).
- The Logbook Summary Report (LSR) and the "All Logged
Procedures" reports can be generated from the reports section in
