The British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) has a national clinical audit programme in place following the development of its quantitative (auditable) standards based on recommended audit points derived from evidence-based clinical guidelines.
At least one national audit will be carried out every year, with the aim of ascertaining the membership's adherence to national guidelines, as well as providing the opportunity for the membership to participate in national audits with BAD assistance.
