“Clinical audit is one of the simplest and yet most effective clinical processes. As well as ensuring compliance with minimum standards, clinical audit is about using information to drive improvements to clinical care and patient outcomes; is a key way for professionals to appraise and improve their own clinical practice; is a team-building activity; and aids attainment of excellence in clinical care.” The Royal College of Psychiatrists Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI)

Following our Annual Clinical Audit Summit this conference has been developed specifically to focus on delivering improvement through clinical audit in a mental health setting. The conference will bring together clinicians and managers leading local clinical audit programmes.  Supported by the National Quality Improvement and Clinical Audit Network (NQICAN), through national mental health clinical audit developments, and practical case studies the conference will provide a practical guide to improving clinical audit practice that delivers change in mental health.

"Trusts rated good and outstanding have effective clinical audit processes and ensure that audits are used to drive quality improvements” Care Quality Commission, 2017
