Please note that while much of the information in this guide remains relevant it has been superseded by ‘Learning to Make a Difference‘ a programme designed to empower junior doctors through the development of quality improvement skills. You can also find a range of information and guidance on our resources for trainee doctors webpage.

Junior doctors are expected to carry out clinical audits or quality improvement projects to meet their training requirements. Training and support for junior doctors to help them benefit from their clinical audit or QI experiences may vary by NHS Trust.

This guide is intended to help people responsible for clinical audit and QI in NHS Trusts to provide appropriate support for these activities. It will also help NHS Trusts ensure that they gain the maximum benefit from the clinical audits and QI projects carried out by doctors in training.
