Significant Event Audit (SEA) is an increasingly popular risk management tool utilised by general practitioners (GPs) since the mid-1990s. SEA allows practices to reflect on the delivery of care and to make changes that enhance patient safety. Evidence shows that SEA improves teamwork and can also enhance communication and morale.
