Self-auditing in primary care
Undertaking self-auditing is crucial for doctors in their practices for several reasons. Self-auditing refers to evaluating one’s work to ensure that it meets the required standards, and it involves reviewing medical records, patient care, and clinical outcomes.
Self-auditing can be essential to a doctor’s professional development. By reviewing their work, doctors can identify areas where they need to improve their skills or knowledge and take steps to address them. This can help them provide better patient care and advance in their careers.
