The Dorevitch Pathology Surgical Skin Audit has been created for Doctors and Specialists who have an interest in skin pathology and refer histology to Dorevitch Pathology.
The audit will enable Doctors to conduct a systematic review of their clinical technique; assessing identification and diagnostic accuracy, detection rates, and histological performance in the practice setting.
Doctors statewide 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.
Features and data included in the report are histological and provisional diagnosis, number of new and previously biopsied specimens in audit, diagnostic accuracy for lesion types, definitive management and number of procedures performed.
Doctors can elect to receive their report on a quarterly, 6 monthly or annual basis.
Doctors must use the dedicated green Surgical Skin Audit Request Forms and complete the reverse side with their provisional diagnosis, in order for their specimens to count toward the audit totals.
