  3. 3. INFORMATION ON CLINICAL AUDIT FOR BAOS PRIZEClinical Audit is.........‘A Clinically led initiative which seeks to improve the quality and outcome of patients’ carethrough structured peer review, whereby clinicians examine their practice and results againstagreed explicit standards and modify their practice where indicated.’NHSE 1996Or in English………….. • Clinical Audit is a way of finding out whether we are doing what we should be doing • Are we following guidelines? • Are we applying best practice?So how do we do this? • Put very simply Clinical Audit works by collecting information or data, and comparing it to set standards and guidelines • An effective Clinical Audit needs at least two data collections. (If you only do one, all youve done is collect data!) • The first data collection establishes the current position. • Plan and implement changes (where necessary). • Allow time for the changes to take effect. • Collect data a second time to see if the changes have resulted in improvement.This is known as the Audit Cycle.The Audit Cycle www.baos.org.uk 0131 527 3402 baos@rcsed.ac.u k

Why do we need it? • To improve patient care; • To enhance staff training and educational development; • To ensure clinical effectiveness through the monitoring of clinical guidelines/standards.The differences between Research and Audit • Research asks “What is the right thing to do?” • Audit asks “Are we doing the right thing?”5 QUESTIONS AND ACTIONS FOR AUDIT What should we be doing? Set standards from the evidence Have we made Are we doing it? things better? Measure practice Evaluate change compare with standards Are we doing it? Have we made Measure practice things better? compare with Evaluate change standardsPlanning your audit-proformasProformas • How? • Who? • Where?How? • Is the information you require already collected, for example in patient’s notes or electronically? • If so a retrospective type audit is suitable • If the information is not routinely collected a prospective audit is required www.baos.org.uk 0131 527 3402 baos@rcsed.ac.u k
