Documenting local clinical audit – a guide to reporting and recording

Guidance | Published: 22 Nov 2016 | Author: HQIP

This publication describes how clinical audits undertaken at a local level should be documented. It includes a template for a clinical audit report that is intended to be adaptable for local use. While the focus of the guide is on clinical audit, a similar approach can be used in documenting any quality improvement project undertaken by clinicians and clinical teams working at a local level.

This guide is linked to, and should be read with, ‘Developing a clinical audit policy’, ‘Developing a clinical audit strategy’ and ‘Developing a clinical audit programme’

This guide replaces ‘Template for clinical audit report’ published in 2012.
