Clinical Audit | Skin Cancer Surgical Audit 2020–2022

Monday, 13 January 2020 | Sonic Healthcare


Designed to improve the quality of patient care and outcomes, the Skin Cancer Surgical Audit allows referring doctors with an interest in skin cancer to participate in a comparative review of their personal findings against those of their peers and the wider GP cohort. It is an independent, Australia-wide program with thousands of participating GPs.


  1. Delivered online and accessible any time
  2. Clinically relevant content based on a needs assessment guided by GPs, with measurable learning outcomes
  3. No minimum number of referrals required; patients included should be representative of your clinical practice
  4. Comprehensive reporting
  5. Evaluation questionnaires which can be submitted any time.

Summative report

For the first time, we are pleased to provide a new summative report following the completion of two consecutive intervals. This report is being incorporated into the Skin Cancer Surgical Audit in accordance with the new RACGP CPD accreditation standard. It will provide a summary of outcomes in the interval reports, enabling you to measure your achievement against the learning outcomes.

Episode summary

An episode summary can be downloaded at any time. The report is compatible with Excel and contains the data in the audit database for your patients. The data provides you with an opportunity to review and compare clinical and histological findings for individual patients or specific diagnoses, such as melanoma. Many doctors find it a very valuable report when reviewing patient management.

Additional report features for the 2020–2022 triennium include:

  • Peer group based on case numbers
  • Count of cases included in each dataset
  • Biopsy types
  • Melanoma diagnoses highlighted in the diagnostic accuracy and sensitivity table.
