Follow this conference on Twitter #ClinicalAudit2016

This one day conference will update clinical audit managers, leads and clinicians running clinical audit programmes on national and local developments in clinical audit policy and practice. The conference will open with an update on monitoring and improving quality through clinical audit, trust reporting and action planning, national and local developments, and what needs to change in trust for clinical audit.

A key focus of the day will be to ensure clinical audit leads can effectively improvement quality and implement changes as a result of clinical audit programmes. Practical case studies will focus on developing an effective clinical audit programme and supporting staff to deliver quality through clinical audit, clinical audit board assurance, clinical audit for patient safety with an update on developments in mortality audit and monitoring, learning from the CQC inspections with regard to what the CQC are looking for in terms of clinical audit, reporting clinical audit findings, delivering change as a result of clinical audit findings and demonstrating involvement, reflection and improvement as a result of involvement in national clinical audit at a local level.

“All healthcare professionals should take part in regular and systematic clinical audit, both quantitative audits of the care of groups of patients against defined criteria (with re-audit to demonstrate change)… During an inspection, we are looking for evidence that all the 4 stages have taken place. 

  • Stage 1: Preparation and planning (including for re-audit)
  • Stage 2: Measuring performance
  • Stage 3: Implementing change
  • Stage 4: Sustaining improvement (including reaudit)”
