Abstract

Quality assurance is a topical issue in general practice. This study examined the Morbidity and Therapeutic Index (MTI), a self-audit activity, offered as a QA option by the RACGP. GP response to this activity was generally positive and it appears to be an adequate tool for performance review. The study highlights the problems of assessing the extent to which the MTI leads to change and improvement in quality of care.
