The Clinical Audit Summit 2017 supported by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and the National Quality Improvement and Clinical Audit Network (NQICAN) will bring together clinicians and managers leading local Clinical Audit for Improvement. Through a series of national updates, practical case studies, masterclasses and poster presentations, this one day conference brings together an exceptional gathering of leading practitioners, clinicians, policy makers and academics to set out the major developments, promote innovative areas of clinical audit, and debate the key challenges affecting you and your clinical audit practice.
This summit focuses on clinical audit for improvement with a particular focus on the development of effective local clinical audit leading to audit recommendations that change practice and improve patient care. Following the joint introductory session the conference programme splits into a series of focus issues providing delegates with the opportunity to hear from and question a variety of clinical audit leads, clinicians and managers on issues such as using clinical audit to monitor performance – the CQC perspective, addressing co-morbidity in national and local audit – moving from disease specific audit, delivering an effective local clinical audit programme, ensuring implementation of audit recommendations, using clinical audit findings to change commissioning practice, reporting audit findings and engaging clinicians in clinical audit.
In depth interactive masterclasses will this year focus on critical success factors in ensuring clinical audit leads to change, and a second masterclass updating delegates on national clinical audit developments.
The summit aims to empower clinicians and clinical audit leads to demonstrate to your trust board the importance of clinical audit. Clinical audit and clinical audit skills have a vital place in the centre of quality improvement and improving outcomes for patients. The aim of the conference is to ensure that audit is impacting on patient outcomes at a local level and answers the questions that trust boards are asking.
