Abstract:

Medical appraisal was originally introduced as a tool to support professional development. The proposed link between medical appraisal and revalidation has given rise to uncertainty regarding its role. Wide variations exist in appraisal systems and concerns have arisen regarding its fitness for purpose. We propose a clarification of the purpose of medical appraisal in the context of a comprehensive clinical governance system and suggest a model of appraisal that satisfies this role in all healthcare settings. We also report the development of a framework for quality assurance of medical appraisal systems to ensure they fulfil their purpose, and encourage continuously evolving quality.
