Reminders

New Reporting/Activity Process

SWAN’S TO DO LIST has been enhanced so you can easily track when reports or activities are due and complete them by the due date.

To reduce your email traffic, initial reminders for the due date of activities or reports will NOT be sent.

The new process will now be:

STATUS ACTION
Activity report tracking Log in to SWAN regularly to complete by due date. No reminder email sent
Activity reports due Complete and send by due date. No reminder email sent
Activity reports overdue Reminder email sent mid-month
Activity reports seven days overdue Reminder phone call

 

After this timeframe an escalation process will occur. This is referred to in MCCC’s TR 023 Professional Behaviours Policy: Procedures

Please note: activity over 60 days overdue will not be displayed. We will contact you if this applies to you.

Should you have any queries, please contact your MCCC REAPS directly or call: 1300 622 247 

Change to training time requirements

MCCC following ongoing discussions with the RACGP and in line with the NTCER, will be enforcing the following as definitions of training:

Full time training requires full time employment of 38 hours per week worked over at least four days*, averaged over a four week period. It will encompass patient contact time, education release time, in practice teaching time and administration time (where applicable). Anything less than 38 hours will be considered part time training.

Minimum part time training is 14.5 hours per week employment over a minimum of two days*. This will encompass patient contact time, education release time, in practice teaching time and administration time (where applicable).

Please note that if a registrar is working across two practices then they must meet the minimum 14.5 hour of employment at each location.

Should you have any queries, please contact your MCCC REAPS directly or call: 1300 622 247

*each session must not be less than three consecutive hours.

Additional leave

Are registrars taking additional leave that exceeds annual and personal leave allocations, as per the NCTER and AGPT leave policy? This is known as program leave.

Variation to training time

Are registrars wanting to alter their hours of work?

Both program leave and/or variations to training time will affect their overall training time and possibly when they can sit exams.

Accurate records are required at ALL levels of training. When relevant, please ask them to complete the appropriate forms and email to the relevant address.
