Transforming Clinical Audit Data into Quality Improvements online learning package

catpBenefits of the Learning Package

Clinicians and clinical audit staff are often expected to teach clinical staff how to do a clinical audit. But clinicians and facilitators don’t have the time to properly develop an effective, professional teaching package that will work time after time with clinical teams.

We have designed the Transforming Clinical Audit Data into Quality Improvements Learning Package as a tool for clinical audit leads and clinical audit staff.

Intended uses

The materials and content in the package are flexible and can be used in a number of different ways including any of the following:

  • a short presentation on key stages in the clinical audit process
  • short presentations on any of the stages in successfully analysing and acting on clinical audit findings
  • a series of 2–hour, half–day, one–day or one–and–a–half–day workshops on key stages in clinical audit.
Package components

The package includes an introduction and 6 modules, each of which takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. The content covered in the package includes the following by module:

  1. Introduction to the package
  2. 1 — Checking clinical audit findings
  3. 2 — Reporting clinical audit findings
  4. 3 — Analysing variation in clinical practice
  5. 4 — Analysing shortcomings in patient care
  6. 5 — Planning and taking the right actions to achieve improvement
  7. 6 — Checking if improvement was achieved

The package includes:

  • a binder containing all the materials
  • guidance on how to use the Learning Package
  • a set of PowerPoint presentations, a total of 179 slides in 2 versions, with or without voice-overs
  • 7 word-by-word scripts for use in giving presentations for workshops if you use the slides without voice-overs
