This book provides a clear and practical guide to implementing a clinical audit in practice. Divided into three parts, it introduces and contextualizes what a clinical audit is and how it fits in with other strategies such as evidence-based practice. The second part consists of a step-by-step guide to conducting a clinical audit project in practice and part three sets out the issues which need to be considered when implementing a clinical audit program and disseminating the results. By working through the manual, readers will be equipped to design, plan and implement a clinical audit project in order to develop patient care in line with the latest available evidence.
