Introduction

The CLWRota Training & Management Days are held on a day in mid-March at a central London location. The Training & Management days are held at approximately 6 month intervals from the Annual Forums.

The "T&M" Days focus on training and operational aspects of the rota in the morning, and management aspects including reporting and benchmarking in the afternoon.

March 2012 Training & Management Day

At the 2012 March Management & Training Day the CLWRota team presented several graphs showing both individual department and cross-departmental activity. The main focus of analysis data was cross-departmental benchmarks which incorporated data from 26 departments which have used the CLWRota anaesthetics rota management system for at least 12 months.

Data for the benchmark reports came from the CLWRota system together with session scoring information from an early release of our Rota Management Console. Each department's name has been replaced with a random two character code to maintain anonymity.

First, a set of graphs were shown of individual department activity. DCC activity of various types is stacked above the zero line, with leave shown below the zero line.

The department activity graph is useful for showing how various factors, such as trainee solo sessions or the extra & locum sessions, contribute to DCC session delivery. Variations in leave through the year can also be easily discerned, as can the balance of planned, unplanned (such as leave for sickness) and study/professional leave.

Few departments show a dip in activity in August 2011. The three bank holidays in April 2011 caused significant drops in activity across most departments.
