Clinical Audit Awareness Week 2024

The next Clinical Audit Awareness Week (#CAAW24) will be held from 24-28 June 2024.

Clinical Audit Awareness Week is a national campaign to promote and celebrate the benefits and impact of clinical audit and quality improvement work in healthcare. It is run in collaboration with the National Quality Improvement (incl. Clinical Audit) Network (N-QI-CAN). This year, we are keen to involve the wider health and care sector in this campaign. As such, we will be announcing events and activities aimed at promoting the benefits of translating data and evidence into meaningful quality improvement. Watch this space but, in the meantime, please note…

Clinical Audit Heroes Awards

As always, the event will centre around the Clinical Audit Heroes Awards. In recognition of the success of the 2023 awards, the categories for 2024 will be largely the same as last year:

  • Patient safety
  • Patient and public involvement
  • Healthcare inequalities
  • Influencing change
  • Sustainability

The awards will be open for nominations from Thurs 28 March (and will close on Sunday 5 May). More information, including criteria and details of how to enter online, will be posted on the awards page of our website before that date, and shared via our monthly eBulletin as well as on HQIP’s social media channels (further information on how to stay up-to-date can be found below). The award winners will be announced during #CAAW24, from 24-28 June, so keep that date free if planning an entry.
