“Our challenge as health professionals is to synchronise audit, quality assurance and quality improvement.” Prof Danny Keenan, Medical Director, Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership, March 2019

“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)

“Clinical audit forms the backbone of clinical governance systems in most health service providers today. The main tasks of clinical audit procedures are to establish whether services are being reliably delivered to the required quality standard and, if not, to help improve them. Successful clinical audits collect the relevant data, analyse and understand it, and use it to inform improvement.” NHS Improvement 2018

“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

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.  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.

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve clinical audit practice in mental health
  • Learn from outstanding practice in delivering quality improvement and change as a result of clinical audit findings
  • Reflect on national mental health clinical audit developments
