HQIP local clinical audit handbook for physicians

Guidance | Published: 01 Jan 2011

NB: While some of the information in this handbook is still relevant, much of the references and terms are out of date. HQIP will not be updating this guide. Please see the Guide for Clinical Audit Leads and the Guide to involving junior doctors in clinical audit and quality improvement for other guidance for clinicians.

This handbook includes case study examples from local clinical audits. It can be used by:

  • By the physician working in a multi-professional local clinical team
  • By junior doctors to maximise benefit from local clinical audit
  • For improving the quality of care at the local level
  • In professional development

The authors have specifically addressed the handbook towards the needs of physicians, both in consultant posts and in training. Many of the messages, however, will be relevant to all members of multi-professional clinical teams.
