Revalidation

Clinical outcome data, comparative performance reports and revalidation


Dear Editor,

I read with interest your article, Clinical outcome data, comparative performance reports and revalidation, in Bulletin 73 (May 2012).

I must applaud the authors and anaesthesia department of Harrogate District Hospital for taking the first steps toward gathering data that will help incentivise outcome-based, rather than activity-based anaesthesia care.

Patient feedback for Revalidation


Dear Editor,

We read with interest the article by Dr Moonesinghe regarding patient feedback surveys for use in revalidation.  She points out that many aspects of our work do not easily lend themselves to surveys of this type, while entreating us to engage with validated surveys which only cover our initial encounter with the patient.  This seems a little defeatist, when almost the whole thrust of modern anaesthesia has concentrated on other aspects like safety, lack or awareness, effective analgesia and treatment of nausea and vomiting.

Patient feedback for Revalidation


Dear Editor,

I welcomed Dr Moonesinghe’s article on ‘Patient feedback for Revalidation’ as the forms arrived for revalidation without much warning. The article gives the background to the purpose of the forms and a link to the guidance given by the Working Party on Multi-source Feedback.[1] The guidance has 17 pages.
