Breen raises an important issue and asks some salient questions,1 but the “bad apples” do not provide the main professional or educational impetus for revalidation. The real problem is that the continuing professional development practices of most practitioners have little impact on quality of care:2 there is an “implementation gap”.3 There is good evidence that immediate and substantial improvements in patients' outcomes can be had if what is known to work is implemented in clinical practice.
