The project was part of HQIP's wider objective of championing professionalisation for quality improvement staff in health and social care. We conducted a review of audit and QI staff in the autumn of 2011 to determine the degree of interest in creating a professional body to represent audit staff. Broadly, the results show that while there is some support for the move, it is not currently deemed appropriate and also would not currently be viable - due in some part to respondents being either unable or unwilling to commit the funds necessary to support such a project.
HQIP commissioned the Social Care Association (SCA) to carry out the consultation, which worked with the Professional Association Research Network (PARN) to gather and assess the results. Some 273 questionnaires were completed between October and December 2011 alongside interviews and focus groups, including speaking with eleven clinical audit networks and their attending members.
