The Annual Clinical Audit Leadership Summit 2019 brings together clinicians and managers leading local Clinical Audit for Improvement. Through a series of national updates, practical case studies and extended in depth skills development sessions, an exceptional gathering of leading practitioners, clinicians, and policy makers will set out the major developments, promote innovative areas of clinical audit, and debate the key challenges affecting you and your clinical audit practice.“Clinical audit forms the backbone of clinical governance systems in most health service providers today. The main tasks of clinical audit procedures are to establish whether services are being reliably delivered to the required quality standard and, if not, to help improve them. Successful clinical audits collect the relevant data, analyse and understand it, and use it to inform improvement.” NHS Improvement 2018“For a trust to be confident about the quality of its services there must be a comprehensive clinical audit programme supported by a programme of continuous quality improvement” Care Quality CommissionThis summit focuses on clinical audit for improvement with a particular focus on the development of effective local clinical audit leading to audit recommendations that change practice and improve patient care and enables you to:Network with colleagues who are working to improve clinical audit practiceReflect on the patient perspective on the role of patients and patient leadership in ensuring change following audit findingsLearn from outstanding practice in quality improvement and change as a result of clinical audit findingsDevelop your clinical leadership skills and ensure your voice is heardUnderstand a human factors approach to change following clinical audit findingsReflect on how CQC uses national clinical audit to support qualityimprovement through monitoring and inspectionMeet the national requirements for Mortality AuditUnderstand how you can use National Clinical Audits for Identification of QI projects: Focusing on priority areas for meaningful improvementIdentify key strategies for ensuring change occurs as a result of clinical auditSelf assess, reflect and expand your skills in clinical audit practiceGain cpd accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence100% of delegates at our previous conference on this subject would recommend it to a colleague
