Skin Cancer Surgical Audit
Sonic Healthcare has created an independent, Australia-wide Skin Cancer Surgical Audit to encourage ongoing refinement diagnosis, detection and collection of skin lesions.
With more than 4,000 participants, the audit is designed to improve the quality of patient care and outcomes, and general practitioners are provided with statistically relevant feedback about their own clinical practice and peer-comparisons.
Continuing professional development
Sonic Healthcare is proud to be an education provider of the RACGP in the 2023–2025 triennium.
