  • What is in the trainer menu?
    • There are three options in the trainer menu:

      To see these options, select "Trainer menu" from the main menu. To close the menu, select the "X" in the bottom left corner.


  • How does a supervisor see the doctors they're supervising?
      1. Trainer menu > Supervising
      2. 'Previous', 'Current' and 'Future' supervised foundation doctors/NTGs will appear in three tabs.

      These groups are calculated using a FD's/NTG's active rotation. This means that supervised FDs/NTGs will not move from 'Current' to 'Previous' the day after the end of the supervised placement.

      You can

      - See a FD's/NTG's portfolio by selecting the 'Open portfolio' link

      - Create new forms by selecting one of the quick access links in the grey box on the right

  • What is the trainer ‘Activity Summary’?
    • Users with a "trainer" permission on Horus can view a list of forms they have completed (that is, signed for foundation doctors/NTGs).

      1. Trainer menu > Activity Summary

      2. Select 'Advanced filters' to see all the below filters.

      - Dates from/to forms were completed
      - GMC Number
      - First name
      - Last name
      - Email address
      - Portfolio item type (that is, form name - see a list on the Blank Forms page)

      3. Select 'Filter' to search.

      You can view 10, 25 or 50 records at a time.

      You can view the completed form directly from this page by selecting 'Open' next to the relevant form.

      If required, you can download the page as PDF by using the browsers "Print to PDF" option. Print the page as normal within your browser, then choose "Save as PDF" as the printer output. Exact instructions will vary between browsers, but all popular Desktop browsers support this.
