Delivering Quality Clinical Audit
This educational day is a unique opportunity to hear from national bodies and networks as well as experienced NHS clinical audit staff from across the country, giving you a current and useful insight in to the entire process from national audits to day-to-day responsibilities.
If your service is striving to put patient safety and quality improvement at the heart of clinical audit and could benefit from sharing knowledge with other NHS professionals, then this seminar will offer practical advice and guidance to help your clinical audit team achieve their aims. Join us in Manchester and return to your service knowing how to confidently and effectively:
- Achieve patient safety best practice through choosing timely and appropriate audit topics and sizes as well as working more closely with clinicians
- Enable quality improvement by making this a priority for all staff and using QI as a method to unite the aims of multidisciplinary teams
- Develop the role of clinical audit by engaging with networks, empowering staff and setting gold standard working practices for a successful future
- Establish and maintain clinical relationships to drive forward the role of clinical audit within the wider quality improvement process
This seminar has been designed to give clinical audit leads access to varied case studies as well as providing opportunities to network with valuable new contacts. Personalise your experience by bringing questions and stumbling blocks and working with your peers throughout the day to find a solution. By attending this one specialised seminar, you will build your knowledge and expertise on how to:
- Consistently conduct audits with purpose and the potential to improve quality
- Unite auditors and clinicians to place patient safety at the heart of all hospital activity
- Support and encourage staff to play a more significant role in patient safety
- Use root cause analysis and help clinicians to understand this to drive forward improvements
This focussed, peer-led learning group will explore how your service can confidently and effectively approach Clinical Audit to enhance patient safety and ensure data is both accurate and comprehensive. This timely programme has been created in order to boost outcomes for:
- Clinical Audit Managers
