Appraisal Forms on SOAR

SOAR is used by doctors working in Scotland (in both Primary and Secondary Care) for their Appraisal needs.  Online Appraisal forms were first introduced around 2011/2012 on SOAR, and feedback has been positive.  These online live demos are designed to give users an overview of how the electronic processes work, and are aimed at both Appraisers and Appraisees alike.

The Demo

The session will include an overview of the processes, before demo'ing a mock appraisal to show what the Appraiser and Appraisee needs to do on SOAR.

There will be an opportunity for Questions and Answers at the end of each demo.

The sessions are scheduled for 1 hour.

These are live online sessions, no travel is required.  You just need to be at your computer (with Internet connection) and have access to a telephone at the scheduled time.
