Quality Improvement Activity (QIA)

Core Element B (Domain 2)

Domain 2: Safety and Quality

For the purposes of revalidation you will have to demonstrate that you regularly participate in activities that review and evaluate the quality of your work. Examples of the types of supporting information are:

  • clinical audit
  • review of clinical outcomes
  • case review or discussion
  • audit and monitoring of a teaching programme
  • evaluation of the impact and effectiveness of a piece of health policy or management practice

Submission of QIA is required for every appraisal.

Good medical practice requires all doctors to:

  • Contribute to and comply with systems to protect patients (para 22-23)
  • Respond to risks to safety (para 24-27)
  • Protect patients and colleagues from any risk posed by your health (para 28-30)
