Experiences in training ICD-10 trainers
Walker, Sue M. & Waller, Garry S. (2010) Experiences in training ICD-10 trainers. In Jakob, Robert (Ed.) Proceedings of the WHO-FIC Annual Meeting, Toronto 2010, World Health Organization, Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel, Toronto.
The National Centre for Health Information Research & Training (formerly NCCH Brisbane) has been conducting an annual introductory ICD-10 coding program in Brisbane for seven years. In 2008, the Centre introduced a new initiative, inviting potential trainers to participate in a one week train the trainer workshop prior to the regular coder training. The new trainers are provided with the opportunity to practice their new skills with the support and assistance of the NCHIRT trainers during the subsequent introductory program.
This paper will report on the results of a survey of participants of these programs about their experiences conducting training courses in their own countries. The train the trainer program as a means to create a cadre of trainers to support the implementation of ICD-11 will be explored.
