Based off user feedback from survey two, we have updated the result entry form to make your result entry quicker.
New result entry tab
To begin entering results, select the Result Entry tab. As you will see, this will display the following screen.
As you can see above, there is a separate tab for open and closed surveys. Therefore, once a survey has closed, it will move to the “CLOSED” tab.
Opening and closing dates
Survey opening and closing dates are displayed alongside the survey information, allowing for an easier way to organise your work. Also, times displayed are in your local time.
Result entry status
The “Status” bar indicates which stage your result submission is currently at. Statuses used are; Enter Results, Draft or Submitted. Results that are not submitted (including results saved in draft) 5 days before the closing date will appear in red. If no results have been submitted, or results are still in draft, an email reminder will be sent.
Viewing the survey round
Begin entering results by selecting the “Survey instructions” hyperlink, or the “Status” related to the survey. Selecting “Survey instructions” brings you to the relevant information regarding this survey, shown in the images below. Selecting the “Status” will take you directly to the “RESULT ENTRY” tab.
The survey instructions contain all necessary program information, such as clinical notes and sample information. We advise making yourself familiar with this page before entering results.
Now that you have familiarised yourself with the survey instructions, it is time to enter results. Select the “RESULT ENTRY” tab within the survey to move to the result entry page.
As highlighted, each sample has its own tab with its own result entry screen.
Progressing further down the page, certain fields are mandatory to complete. Mandatory fields have an asterisk to highlight them.
Fill in the fields as necessary, relevant to your performed tests. Please make sure to enter a method for every test that you perform. This will enable us to create meaningful comparison across the different methods used.
Now for the antibiotics. To keep things clean, we gave each added antibiotic its own interface within the result entry screen. As you can see from the image below, it lays out all the information required for each selection.
Once you have filled in the relevant fields, select the “Add another antibiotic” button. This will close your current selection panel and automatically open another.
This opens a new field for you to enter another antibiotic susceptibility.
I would also like to make note of the fact that your original method selection applies to all following antibiotics. Not to fear, however, as you can change it if you use a different method for one of your selected antibiotics.
Repeat this process as necessary until you have entered all your findings.
When you are ready, click the arrow at the bottom of the page to move to the next sample. As you can see above, the arrow has been highlighted.
All results have been entered and you are now ready to submit your results. Doing so is as simple as clicking the “Progress to submit” button which will display all your entries for review.
Once you have reviewed your selections and are happy to progress, press the “Complete submission” button. If you wish to go back and change anything, select cancel.
A digital stamp of the submitting user’s name will be attached to the submission page. As you are allowed to make changes up until the closing date of a survey, if you do happen to submit any changes, this stamp will change to the last submitting user. As a confirmation, the user who submitted results will also receive an email.
Congratulations! You have successfully entered results for the Urine Bacteriology program in the new myQAP portal. As always, please use the feedback option to share your thoughts.
