HOW CAN MY TRAINERS VALIDATE MY RECORDS?

1. ELECTRONIC VALIDATION

The surgeon named as the responsible consultant in your operation records can validate that particular record online if you grant them “trainer access” to your account. You need only grant the trainer access for the duration of their supervision and you can remove their access once you move onto another rotation.Only trainers who are already registered for an eLogbook account can be granted trainer access to validate your records – so if your trainer doesn’t have an account yet encourage them to register so that they can start building up their own logbook for appraisal and revalidation. How to grant a trainer access to validate and view consolidations of your records:

  • Find the Trainer Access page under the Security menu in your eLogbook account.
  • Type in your trainer’s name as follows in the search box: surname [space] first initial.
  • If they are registered for an account, click on their name when it appears in the search results.
  • If your trainer is present you can ask them to enter their logbook password, and they will then have immediate access logbook.
  • If your trainer is not present you can create a verification password for them in the box provided. You will need to tell your trainer the password you have created for them (e.g. via the eLogbook’s internal messaging system).

2. IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT TRAINER ACCESS PASSWORDS

We would strongly advise against using your own eLogbook password – it is against our Terms and Conditions to divulge your eLogbook password to ANYONE. When your trainer has been granted access to your records their name will be listed on the 'Trainer Access' page. Your trainer should enter the access password against your name on their own account’s My trainees page, then they will be able to see a tabular consolidation of your operative records in frequency order. They will also be able to validate those operations for which they have been named as the responsible consultant and simultaneously copy those records into their own accounts.
