For Domain 2, a Quality Improvement Activity is required once in a 5-year revalidation cycle and a Review of Significant Events is required for every appraisal.
In this section you will find a range of tried and tested tools which can help you to provide supporting information relating to Quality Improvement Activities.
There are also some worked examples in prescribing and referrals which you may find helpful.
You may provide as many Quality Improvement Activity (QIA) reviews as you wish, but you are required to provide details of a Quality Improvement Activity (QIA) once in a 5-year revalidation cycle.
Additionally, multi-source feedback (MSF) and patient survey questionnaires (PSQ) are also considered examples of QIA, which are both required once in a 5-year revalidation cycle (though not necessary in the same appraisal year).
In addition you must provide ten SEA reports in the 5 year cycle. These can include Child Protection reports.
(Please note that prescribing data is also a convenient source of audit data)
See the SEA section from the main toolkit for suggestions: this really DOES require working with somebody else, and most OOH organisations run SEA meetings. If all else fails you might use a case report proforma. Importantly the SEA should involve you and have personal relevance to you as a participant, not simply as an issue for the OOH service. Remember you should be able to learn and modify your own practice as a result of the SEA.
