7.0 THE ASSESSMENT PROCESS
Upon receipt, the DVDs will be made anonymous and passed on to two independent assessors (National Training Programme Trainers) who will report to Imperial College on their recommendation of competency for ‘sign off’. DVDs are assessed using the L-CAT (Laparoscopic Colorectal Assessment Tool) to view this document go to www.lapco.nhs.uk/LCAT-forms.php. It is anticipated that the sign off procedure will take in the region of 6-8 weeks from the reciept of submission of DVD material, but this will depend on the turnaround of the assessors. The sign off decision will be reported to the National Clinical Lead who will inform the trainee & training centre in writing by email and hard copy correspondance of the outcome recommendation for ‘sign off’ which will be accompanied with a copy of the assessment feedback from the DVD material submitted. Some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the sign off assessment are listed below, underneath the DVD examples from Trainees with successful sign off assessments.
