Cervical Screening Audit

Audit for self-reflection

The QML Pathology Cervical Screening Audit is the perfect audit for self-reflection, enabling you to target areas in your practice for refinement and continued improvement of your service to your patients.

The audit has been designed with input from specialists and generalists to be both informative and practical. Each practitioner registered for the audit will receive their individual results clearly presented in a graphic and text format.

Reporting Features

Not only will the audit data include the HPV risk profile of your patient cohort compared to national figures, it will also help you ensure that your practice aligns with current National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) guidelines.

Accompanying each audit result sheet is an additional list of all your patients who may specifically need follow up or further intervention – a useful second step to reinforce the safe and correct management of your patients.

Surgical Skin Audit

National Skin Audit

The National Skin Audit enables doctors to conduct a review of their clinical practice; assessing identification processes, detection rates, and diagnostic and histological accuracy and treatment rates overall in the practice setting.

Doctors state-wide can assess their practice and detection of histological and provisional diagnosis, against peers in a confidential setting via graphical and statistical information generated from all registered participants. This information can then be used to further inform and improve surgical practice with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of care for patients.

Reporting Features

The National Skin Audit report has been updated and re-written for the 2020 – 2022 triennium, providing a clearer, more information-rich report. Features include cumulative reporting at the end of each calendar year, enabling practitioners to observe and measure their outcomes, and improvements against the audit’s learning needs.

Reports include information on the number of patients biopsied, number of lesions, provisional diagnoses compared with histological diagnoses and surgical clearance rate for select excised lesions in easy to read and interpret graphical reports.

All results are completely confidential.
