Staff Logbook. FertAid has developed an online activities logbook for all IVF personnel. There is a list of common procedures available but you are able to create a personalized activity list. You may log the number of cases each quarter and after authorization by your supervisor may be used for certification or competency by your clinic. There is no cost for this module.
Inspect the current list of Laboratory activities. The list contains basic activities not only for laboratory staff but other IVF Clinic personnel. You can add personalised activities (in English) to customise your logbook although FertAid may make some activities public. Select any activities you wish and add them to your logbook. Review current Logbook activities
Add the number of activities either by quarter or annually for any year. You can add data for any year for any activity. You can then print the page out and ask your supervisor to authorise it. Alternatively, if you are registered as part of a QAP group, your Supervisor can view your activities and by clicking an authorization button can electronically certify that the data is correct.
You can print out the activity summaries by year or by activity over all years.
This section is under development but when completed, you may be able to analyse your activity against other entries. A common concern among embryologists is workload. If you contribute to your logbook, you will be able to access activity analysis.
Finally, FertAid also provides Continuous Professional Development training that can be printed out in a report for certification or accreditation. When complete, FertAid will allow your activity logbook to be incorporated into your CPD Report.
