Clinical Outcomes Publication – style guide

Clinical Outcomes Publication | Published: 05 May 2016 | Author: HQIP

Who and what is this guide for?

This guide is aimed at the National Clinical Audits and specialist associations that come under the COP initiative, as well as any audit considering publishing its results. The purpose of this guide is to outline the mandatory requirements for presenting consultant outcomes and to offer more general guidance, which should be considered when designing websites, reports, supporting text, and graphs.

Why do we need a style guide?

Clinical Outcomes Publication (COP) provides information about the results of medical treatments that can be used by patients, healthcare professionals, and hospitals to improve the safety and quality of care. COP also aims to help reassure patients that the standard of care is being monitored and improved, and help them to make informed decisions about their medical treatment. For this to happen, the information published must be easy to find, navigate around, and understand.
