Develop training in the use of C3MS to ensure that practitioners understand their obligations in uploading data, and the limitations of the incident-based nature of recording.
The South Australian Government accepts this recommendation in principle.
All C3MS-related recommendations and their full acceptance are subject to the outcome of the C3MS review initiated in response to recommendation 20.
The update and rationalisation of C3MS categories and updating of guides about the recording and uploading of information will inform the changes to current training regarding obligations in uploading data. This work is discussed further in the response to recommendation 15.
Review and reform of C3MS training will ensure that obligations in uploading data and recording information, and the limitations of the incident-based nature of recording are covered in future training. C3MS training is currently mandatory for all staff using the system.
Work is underway to update mandated C3MS training programs and resources for data recording obligations.
Regular meetings occur with C3MS trainers to review and update C3MS training. This has included system familiarisation updates plus role-specific training for Department for Child Protection staff.
This is occurring in conjunction with:
- - updates and rationalisation of C3MS categories
- - C3MS updates required as a result of linked projects and recommendations
- - the review and updating of C3MS guides about the recording and uploading of information.
