An introduction to analysing quality improvement and assurance data
Previously An introduction to statistics in clinical audit and improvement
This guide refreshes its 2015 predecessor and sets out the basics of statistical data analysis and presentation for those involved in local clinical audit and improvement projects.
HQIP have worked with NQICAN to update the guide in line with the Making Data Count publication and we have simplified explanations and provided additional examples.
The guide is broken down into sections that detail the types of data that exist, various methods of statistical analysis, ways to present local data clearly, and guidance on sampling techniques. It aims to help those who are new to or unfamiliar with statistical data analysis and presentation, whether patients, patient representatives, staff or Board members.
