Outline of the placement
Introduction to the new Surgery and new ES/ Trainer
Discuss and decide on the weekly rota
Discuss and arrange a practice Induction programme
(Usually about 2 weeks if full time)
Where are the trainee's knowledge gaps?
Check review dates have been set on Eportfolio
(This can be complicated if your trainee is Less Than Full Time (LTFT))
Set up webcam and start videoing consultations
Start completing COTS and CBD's in tutorials
How many patients are you seeing per session? Are you bored? Are you stressed? Discuss this with your ES.
Complete the DDOC induction and start booking sessions early before they fill up.
At about 3 months
Arrange with your trainee to formally share feedback about the post with each other.
Trainee to make arrangements to do PSQ.
If Trainee in ST1 or ST3 needs an MSF as well.
Time to move to a shorter consultation length?
At 4-5 months complete self rating in preparation for ESR. COT's and CBD's should be complete. See here for more details. Check all your OOH sessions have been logged individually and numbered, and supervisor forms have been scanned to e-portfolio.
End of post feedback. Remind your ES if you've not been asked to give any formal feedback about the practice. This is useful for you both.

Arrange a date 1 month prior to end of post for ESR meeting. Put it in the diary now.
You'll also need to bring videos to the small group sessions for ST1/2 at Chelston. It's scary but important.
Example of possible progression in appointment types and numbers of patients seen
All the DDOC sessions need to be logged as seperate epo log entries. Number them please to help us keep track of how many you have done. Also make sure you scan the completed DDOC end of session form in when you do it with your OOH supervisor

Start planning for the ESR. This takes longer than you think, especially if you've not done one before.
Don't get confused between a CSR (something your consultant on the ward does)
and the ESR (Educational Supervisors Report). See Epo page
