Wednesday 16 Oct 2019

The Studio Conference Centre, Birmingham

Improving Quality Through the Effective Use of Clinical Audit

Follow the conference on Twitter #clinicalaudit2019

The Annual Clinical Audit Leadership Summit 2019 brings together clinicians and managers leading local Clinical Audit for Improvement. Through a series of national updates, practical case studies and extended in depth skills development sessions, an exceptional gathering of leading practitioners, clinicians, and policy makers will set out the major developments, promote innovative areas of clinical audit, and debate the key challenges affecting you and your clinical audit practice.

“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”
