FAQs: Why ReD?

Why ReD?

1.     Why should I use ReD?

  1. Take control of your progress through the VTP.
  2. Ensure you’re meeting minimum requirements of procedures.
  3. Make sure you’re getting the exposure you need to succeed.
ReD enables you to do all this and more. It is an essential tool for all trainees, and best of all, you can keep it in your pocket!  

      2.   What is the benefit of using ReD for my learning?
Maintaining a logbook isn’t just a training requirement. ReD’s structured webform standardizes the capture of data in a clinical setting which can reveal gaps in learning.
This will spark a conversation between you and your supervisor and, if needed, your network will adjust training opportunities available to you so as to get you the required experience. 

3.     What are the RMNoPs?

RANZCO’s updated VTP utilises programmatic assessments. We’re taking the focus off largescale exams in favour of continuous learning, feedback and assessment. To ensure all trainees get the full depth and breadth of training, we’ve implemented a list of Required Minimum Number of Procedures (RMNoPs). 
ReD allows you to track progress against the minimums, and if you’re not getting the exposure you need, it's an easy way to advocate for more access to procedures.  
Check out the list of RMNOPs here.


4.  Why must I track RMNoPs?

Tracking your exposure to procedures in ReD allows you to see how you are progressing through the VTP. RANZCO’s Trainee Progression Committee will also be checking in at 21 and 45 months. If you’re not getting the required exposure, they can help address any shortfalls. These safety checks means you can be assured you’re on track in your training.

5.     How can I track RMNoPs?

With ReD’s superior form engine, we have ensured that every RMNoP procedure you log is tracked. You can track your completion via the ReD RMNoP Dashboard. Check out this article
