V4 Dataset Training

AROC v4 Dataset Training Workshops

 With the implementation on 1 July 2012 of version 4 of the AROC inpatient dataset and the simultaneous rollout of the new AOS (AROC Online Services) system (which will incorporate a web-based data entry system to replace SNAPshot), AROC is providing training workshops at several central venues around Australia during June 2012.   In preparation for these events we will be running a series of training workshops in major centres around Australia during June. We invite you to register to attend the workshop most conveniently located for you.  Workshop dates and locations are listed below and can be found in the training flyer. The content of the training is listed below the workshop dates.

NOTE: for those more rural and remote members we will be staging a small number of Webinars as well – dates and times of these will be forwarded separately.  If you cannot attend a workshop and wish to express interest in a Webinar, please indicate this on the registration form.

AROC dataset training – this is aimed at the people who actually collect the AROC dataset, the rehab unit NUM, the key therapists involved in data collection, other clinical staff. The training will go through the new dataset, introduce the new data items, highlight the changes to the dataset, and also explain why each data item is included in the dataset.

The majority of the AROC dataset has remained unchanged, however there are a number of data items that have been modified to improve the utility of the information they collect, and there are a number of new data items. One of the key changes to the dataset is that v4 will incorporate both the inpatient AND ambulatory datasets, as well as some items from the impairment specific adjunct datasets.

A v4 AROC dataset resource package will be distributed to one representative from each facility that attends the training. These packages will include items such as:

  • v4 Data Collection Forms
  • Recommended data collection process
  • Impairment code guidelines
  • SNAP class explanation doc
  • Online v4 data dictionary explanation and link
  • MDT (multi-disciplinary team) care plan

AOS training – the aim of this is to introduce current SNAPshot users (and other interested people) to the new version of AOS, the (exciting new) functionality of which is described in the appendix below. This training will be provided in the last 30 minutes of each workshop to allow appropriate people to attend this section specifically.
