PATIENT & PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT
Introduction to PPI & clinical audit
Effective patient and public involvement/engagement (PPI/PPE)in clinical audit is fundamental to good quality improvement practice, and as such its promotion and support is at the forefront of HQIP's objectives.
To date, this has seen the creation of the Patient Network, with members working with HQIP to help map its PPI strategy. During 2009 this came to fruition with the launch of HQIP's comprehensive 'PPE in Clinical Audit' guidance (pdf), which signified the first landmark in the organisation's ongoing stragegy to help and encourage successful PPE in clinical audit.
HQIP promotes involvement throughout the entire audit cycle and in this section we aim to provide the tools to help make that a reality. For more information or suggestions, contact HQIP Development Officer Kim Rezel on either 020 7469 2511 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
