/for-health-professionals/audits-and-surgical-research/morbidity-audit-and-logbook-tool/plastic-and-reconstructive-surgery-(aus)/

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.

 

Usage

Mandatory for all SET levels.

Logbooks

Trainees have been allocated the SET - SNOMED Plastic Surgery (Aus.) logbook to record their cases.

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.

Historic data import

ASPS and RACS have collaborated to import historic data for rotations completed prior to 1 August 2016. All data is reported in the MALT reports.

Supervisors

MALT uses the terms Nominated Supervisor and Alternate Supervisor.

Nominated supervisor: the Regional Chair from your state who is overseeing training
Alternate supervisor: surgeon in theatre with you

All supervisors must be Fellows of the College (FRACS). Only one Nominated Supervisor can be selected per rotation. Alternate supervisors need to approve the Trainee's logbooks. There may be occasions when the Nominated and Alternate Supervisors are the same individual.

Procedures

This logbook type utilises the SNOMED CT-AU procedure list with selected terms identified by the Training Board as Board Reporting Terms (Excel 4.17 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 tab. Please note that the All Procedures Logged Report is not valid for submission to the Training Board.

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

Aesthetic Impact

From October 2017, all new procedures logged in MALT must include a value for the procedure minimum dataset field "Aesthetic Impact".

Approval process

Cases move through a Supervisory workflow progression from "Draft" to "For Review" to "Approved".

  1. Create and save a case (Draft).
  2. Cases are referred to Supervisor for approval (For Review)
  3. Supervisors approve cases (Approved)
  4. Reports can then be generated and submitted to the Training Board as required. Note: the report should only contain 'Approved' status.
