The use of MALT is mandatory for the duration of training.
Fellows undertaking the ANZTBCRS Post Fellowship Training Program are allocated the ANZTBCRS Logbook and are required to use this logbook for the duration of their training.
This logbook will be allocated in addition to existing logbooks such as the SET - General Surgery logbook and the Fellow - General Surgery logbook.
MALT uses the terms Nominated Supervisor and Alternate Supervisor. Supervisors can view cases or those they are supervising and provide comments on specific cases.
Nominated Supervisor refers to the hospital supervisor.
Alternate Supervisor refers to the surgeon in theatre with the Trainee during a procedure.
All supervisors must be RACS Fellows. The nominated supervisor is responsible for approving cases (see approval process below).
Record cases done in all hospitals (both accredited and unaccredited).
A procedure list has been set by the Training Board. Non-colorectal cases need to be recorded as non-colorectal elective or non-colorectal emergency cases.
For cases where more than one surgical procedure has been undertaken, MALT allows multiple procedures to be recorded.
This SNOMED-ANZTBCRS Logbook utilises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with board reporting terms (XLSX 12.41MB) determined by the Board.
Cases move through a supervisory workflow progression from 'draft' to 'for review' to 'approved'.
- Fill in and save the case (draft).
- Once you are satisfied that the case is complete and accurate, refer to Nominated Supervisor (for review).
- Nominated Supervisors are automatically notified of cases awaiting review, in accordance with the email preferences setup on their MALT account page. Supervisors should review these cases and, where they are satisfied that the case is complete and accurate, approve (approved).
Once all the cases have been approved, you can print the Logbook Summary Report and submit to the Training Board. Please note the report should only contain 'approved' status.
Rotation periods are deactivated at a set date, after which no further cases can be entered.
