Hospital Review Forms
The Hospital Review Form has been re-designed to ensure all centres which provide Advanced Pain Training are able to meet the requirements of the training programme.
The FPM will ask RAPMs to review the APT centres in their region on a triennial basis. The information collected should also show prospective trainees, trainees and consultants the opportunities available in each region.
The process encompasses the documents below and is explained fully in the Guidance Notes:
- The Hospital Review Form: this needs to be sent to the Local Pain Medicine Educational Supervisor in each hospital/centre providing APT in each region. They then need to be returned to the RAPM for summarising. An example of a completed Hospital Review Form can be found here.
- The Approval Checklist: this is for the RAPM to complete for each of the review forms within their region.
- The APT Post summary: this is for the RAPM to complete for their region. This form will show prospective trainees what is available within each region.
- Guidance Notes: this explains the process in more details and suggests how to review the forms.
The RAPMs will send summaries for each centre back to the FPM for publication on the website. When these are submitted, you will find them on the relevant Regional Training Information page; North Thames piloted this in early 2014; you can view the summaries below.
