Surgical Skin Audit

The Laverty Pathology Surgical Skin Audit has been created for Doctors who have an interest in skin pathology and refer histology to Laverty Pathology. 

Audit features

This audit allows doctors to conduct a systematic review of their clinical practice; assessing identification processes, detection rates, and diagnostic and histological accuracy and treatment rates in the practice setting. 

Doctors on a state-by-state basis can assess their practice and detection of histological and provisional diagnosis, against peers in a confidential setting. They can do this via graphical and statistical information generated from all registered participants. This information can then be used to inform and improve surgical practice. Ultimately, the goal is to provide superior quality of care for patients. 

Some features and data included in the report include:

  • 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
  • Margin clearance

All doctors will receive their report at the frequency they requested when they first registered for the audit.
