performance evaluation

Any scheme designed to regularly assess performance against specific benchmarks.

In UK pathology practice, performance evaluation refers to the ongoing assessment of the accuracy of diagnostic histopathology services, and consists of 10 to 20 typical—e.g., not too easy, not too obscure—workload external quality assurance cases sent to each histopathologist in the UK, who writes down his or her preferred diagnosis. The answer sheets are then sent to a central scheme secretary who collates the results and returns them to the participants, the satisfactory performance of which results in a certificate of participation. Similar schemes are in operation in other specialties.

EQA schemes are required for CPA accreditation in the UK and are organised with advice from the Royal College of Pathologists
