All face-to-face ECT visits for registrars have been suspended and replaced with video-link ECTVs. If this is agreeable between the ECT visitor, the registrar and the practice, the visit can proceed via videoconferencing. All visits from 1st June will be scheduled by EV using a Pro Zoom licence. EV does not permit the audio-visual recording of ECTV observations.
EV has sent out communique via email to all ECT Visitors and registrars on the process along with a revised patient consent form and key tips. For more information, contact program support (Sian McDowell in metro or Carol Grassens in rural).
For ACCRM registrars, miniCEX can still be undertaken at the clinic by the registrar’s supervisor if they are an ACRRM Fellow or an accredited ACRRM supervisor as outlined in ACRRM’s Fellowship Assessment Handbook
Training advisor or medical educator contacts will continue via phone or other non-face-to-face means
