Training Needs Analysis (TNAs) and Linked Training Plans All staff involved in the operation of IT Systems within the surgery need to undergo a Training Needs Assessment (TNA) and linked training plan. There are a number of templates you can use for this. A national tool has been developed by PRIMIS+ which can found on the PRIMIS+ website. To download this program firstly Click here and then under the tools for practices section click on IM&T DES Practice IT Knowledge and Skills Training Needs Assessment Software and Instructions. You may be asked to register with PRIMIS+ before you can download the tool.Click here A tool has been developed by the PCT which is slightly easier to use. This can be found here. You can alter this to meet your Practices needs.here No matter which tool you use (can be your own) you will need to provide evidence that all members of staff using computers have undergone this training needs analysis and have a linked plan. When the training has been completed the member of staff will be required to keep a log of the training including the date and a signature by the staff member. Training can be performed in house (by another staff member) or externally to the practice. Staff Training Back to Checklist
What is CHART & CHART online CHART has been developed by GPs as a tool to assess the quality of a snap-shot of data from the clinical system. CHART uses MIQUEST queries (e-Audit) to gather data that gives an indication of the quality of data on the system. These queries are then upload to CHART Online (anonymous data only) and can be compared to other practices within the area to assess prevalence. All practice data is kept anonymous. To download the CHART software please contact Bev Martin or Chris Beyer at the PCT on ext 447. If you have run the queries in CHART and are now ready to upload the information to Chart online then please contact Chris or Bev and they will guide you through the process. Alternatively instructions are available for this here.here CHART Queries The CHART e-Audit queries are designed to promote discussion within the practice around the processes involved in Data Entry and Read coding. The results from the e-Audit tool within CHART will be subject to validation at the assessment visit where justification will be sought for patients not fitting into the designated criteria.
