Published: 19 Aug 2016
This report summarises the key areas of discussion held during HQIP’s Clinical Leadership Seminar on 27 May 2016. It captures the views of the 50 national clinical leaders who attended from 20 national clinical audits and stakeholder organisations. Delegate were asked to consider the challenges they faced in providing clinical leadership to national clinical audit programmes and to consider how these might be tackled.
Some of the issues raised by participants included:
Data quality and timely data access as key barriers to making better use of NCA data and encouraging wider participation in and greater use of audit findings
Difficulties faced by individuals and organisations faced as outliers
A strong desire to improve data flows between NHS Digital and audits
In response HQIP has identified a number of key actions including:
Formation of a methodological working group
The commissioning of audits in as timely a manner as possible in publication cycles – ideally providing real time data
Leading dialogue between NHS Digital and the NCA community to support improved data flows
Further support to clinical leaders encountering difficulties tackling outliers and other challenges
