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

“For a trust to be confident about the quality of its services there must be a comprehensive clinical audit programme supported by a programme of continuous quality improvement” Care Quality Commission, March 2017

“Audits of whether guidelines are being followed are now widely undertaken. Where they are used effectively, they are an important tool for driving improvement in quality. In services that required improvement or were inadequate for effectiveness, audits were typically poorly planned or ineffective. In addition, the audits were not acted on and there were not enough audits being repeated to confirm that there were improvements. Too many audits were planned around the professional needs of staff, for their training or accreditation, rather than being prioritised by the need to improve care for patients. They often did not involve the whole multidisciplinary clinical team…Services without an established national audit were often less able to demonstrate that they were achieving satisfactory outcomes for their patients. In contrast, those services with well-established national audits were often able to show that they achieved good or excellent outcomes.” Care Quality Commission March 2017

The Clinical Audit for Improvement Summit Birmingham 2017 supported by 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, extended sessions and poster presentations, this one day conference brings together an exceptional gathering of leading practitioners, clinicians, and policy makers to set out the major developments, promote innovative areas of clinical audit, and debate the key challenges affecting you and your clinical audit practice.
