2023 – 2025 Triennium
Undertaking self-auditing is crucial for doctors and health care professionals in their practices. Self-auditing allows doctors to evaluate their own work, identify areas for improvement, and ensure that their practice meets the required standards. It is an important part of ongoing professional development and helps to ensure patient safety.
The SCARD surgical audit is a tool designed specifically for skin cancer practitioners working in primary care. It is a self-auditing tool that can be used to track the diagnostic and therapeutic process in real-time. By using SCARD, practitioners can optimize patient safety and receive feedback on their own performance.
In addition to improving patient care, self-auditing and analysis with tools like SCARD also help practitioners to demonstrate their commitment to continuing professional development and ongoing education. This can be important for maintaining professional accreditation and demonstrating competence to regulatory bodies.
By self-auditing and performing analysis with the SCARD Data Pool, practitioners demonstrate their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and ongoing education.
