RO Networks & Calibration
Framework of Quality Assurance
Calibration, Consistency, Learning and Best Practice
In addition to the national policies for medical appraisal and
responding to concerns, there are a number of mechanisms in
place to drive consistency of decision-making, approach and
thresholds for intervention on the part of responsible officers,
appraisers and case investigators. The aim is to ensure that
every doctor, regardless of sector, grade or location in the
country, goes through a process, which is demonstrably aligned
with agreed national standards.
RO Networks & Calibration
Framework of Quality Assurance:
Calibration, Consistency, Learning and Best Practice (c’td)
The mechanisms driving a consistent approach include:
• mandatory engagement with responsible officer networks at which
cases are discussed and responses calibrated. These conform to a
nationally agreed structure, as set out in the Responsible Officer
Network Blueprint.
• regional and national events for responsible officers, appraisers
and case investigators designed specifically to calibrate decisionmaking and thresholds for intervention
RO Networks & Calibration
 Using case studies as one means of calibration
 Different types of case studies in
• Responding to concerns
• Revalidation issues
• Mixed cases
 Real life vs made-up scenarios
 Experience from RO Networks so far?
RO Networks & Calibration
From your own experience in RO networks:
 How do you find the usefulness or otherwise of case study
discussion as a way of calibrating your own day to day decisions?
 What factors enable an effective / useful discussion?
 What factors hinder such discussion?
 How can RO networks be organised so as encourage a wider
contribution from ROs on their real life issues?
