Carl is keen for NQICAN to continue to champion the importance of clinical audit and other quality improvement methods & support QI staff / clinicians undertaking these projects to help improve patient care. 

Carl speaking today said: 
"What changes can we make that will result in improvement?
• Add a prompt on the planner to ask if project is for assurance or improvement
• Add a field on the clinical audit database to allow for ease of reporting on this
• Audit leads to encourage improvement focused audits and push back on assurance if necessary (new field above will help spot these)
• Provide a list of re-audits / improvements required for junior doctor induction
• CW to write to HoS profiling current assurance heavy programme and ask for 1 improvement project for each speciality"

Jim speaking today says 
"Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives”​and “The process-based, data-driven approach to improving the quality of a product or service. It operates under the belief that there is always room for improving operations, processes, and activities to increase quality.”
