Using clinical audit to support quality improvement seminar 26th February 2016
Clinical audit is an integral part of monitoring the quality of care provided by health services. It demonstrates the extent to which practice is in line with recommended guidelines and is a powerful tool to change practice… if used correctly. If not used correctly, it can waste valuable time and resources.
In this seminar we will discuss what a good audit looks like, how you might build one and how to use audit to change practice. We will provide working examples of where audit has changed practice. Importantly, this seminar will give you tools to take away and implement. Speakers will provide advice on what does and does not work, and will provide principles to assist you in getting the most out of the audit activity.
Who should attend? This seminar is intended for those working in the acute and sub-acute health sector with accountability for monitoring performance of a clinical area or across the health facility or an interest in moving into this field. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Directors and Managers of Clinical Services;
- Quality and Safety Managers;
- Risk Managers; and
- Nurse Managers.
