Trainees in this program are
welcome to use MALT to record procedures. However, please be aware
that MALT reports are not accepted by the Australian Board of
Orthopaedic Surgical Training. Trainees should check with the Board
to ensure they are meeting the reporting requirements of the SET
MALT can be used at any SET level to record and store data as a
personal log of procedures performed or as a comprehensive audit
tool. MALT reports will not be accepted by the Board of Orthopaedic
Trainees will be allocated a SET - SNOMED
Orthopaedic Surgery logbook:
This logbook uses the SNOMED
CT-AU reference set with specific terms identified by the Board of
Orthopaedic Surgical Training to be included in the MALT Logbook
Summary Report for International Medical Graduates. These terms are
known within the MALT system as Board Reporting Terms. The MALT
Logbook Summary Report will only show procedure counts for these
Board Reporting Terms. Important: This
report is not valid for submission to the Training Board and
they are for personal use only.
Trainees who have transferred from a different specialty, where
access has been granted to MALT, will retain access to the logbook
from that specialty for reporting.
MALT uses the terms Nominated Supervisor and Alternate
Nominated supervisor: Surgeon overseeing training
Alternate supervisor: Surgeon in theatre with you
There is no requirement for Supervisors in Orthopaedic Surgery
in Australia to use MALT.
Individual cases do not require Supervisor approval from within
the MALT system (see approval process below), but Supervisors will
be informed when a Trainee initially selects them in MALT.
If they wish, Supervisors can view cases for the Trainees they
are supervising and provide comments on specific cases.
The SET - SNOMED Orthopaedic Surgery (Aus.) logbook type
utilises the SNOMED CT-AU procedure list with
selected terms identified as
Reporting Terms (Excel 9.67 MB).
The MALT Logbook Summary Report will only show procedure
counts for Board Reporting Terms.
A report listing ALL procedures can be generated via the
MALT Custom Report Tool, All Procedures Logged Report
For cases where more than one surgical procedure has been
undertaken, MALT allows multiple procedures to be recorded.
Cases move through a non-supervisory workflow progression from
"Draft" to "Completed".
- Fill in and save the case (Draft).
- Ensure all cases are marked as Complete (Completed).
- Reports can then be generated on MALT data. Note that these
reports will not be accepted by the Training Board and are provided
for personal use only.
