Monitoring and evaluating revalidation

We are working with others to monitor the implementation of revalidation. We have also started work to evaluate its impact.

Evaluating the impact of revalidation

We have appointed an independent UK wide collaboration of researchers, UMbRELLA (Uk Medical Revalidation Evaluation coLLAboration), led by Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry to carry out a long-term evaluation of revalidation. It will explore the impact of revalidation and look at ways to help shape it further in the future. This started in 2014 and we expect a series of interim reports with a final report due in 2018.

In 2015 as part of the evaluation, licensed doctors were invited to take part in an online survey about revalidation. The survey is now closed but there are more details on it in our revalidation survey frequently asked questions factsheet.
