Skin Cancer Clinical Audit
Relevance to General Practice
It is vital that GPs have benchmark data to compare their malignant and non-malignant pick-up rate for skin cancers. The skin cancer audit provides GPs with a self-auditing tool whereby they can measure their performance with other clinicians. The audit also importantly assists GPs to be able to identify areas of improvement. This results in better patient management with skin cancers detected earlier and treated efficiently while minimizing unnecessary procedures for benign lesions.
- Participants will be able to have increased accuracy in detecting suspicious lesions
- GPs will be able to compare their performance with their peers and identify areas of practice that can be improved
- GPs will be able to develop an effective management plan for patients that have skin cancers and require follow up ensuring enhanced patient safety
- GPs will be able to recognise their ability to perform procedures within benchmarks and therefore avoid unnecessary procedures.
