Principles and levels of review


Self-review can take many forms and be carried out in a number of ways, but the underlying principles of effective self-review require it to be:

Purposeful – leading to action for improvement

Meaningful – not reviewing for reviewing’s sake

Manageable – realistic in terms of time and human and financial resources

Systematic – programmed so it doesn’t get overlooked

Reliable – based on relevant and valid evidence

Collaborative – involving key stakeholders
