Data Management in Clinical Audit

Clinical audit is a fundamental part of reflective clinical practice.  It allows a comparison of current clinical practice with guideline / evidence-based practice.

An understanding of audit methodology and undertaking clinical audit is an integral component of training at all levels.

In this session, we covered the principles of audit and components of good audit.

Here’s the presentation from Dr Amit Mistri, delivered to the UHL Writing Club at our March 2016 meeting:

Data Management & Analysis March 2016


One thought on “Data Management in Clinical Audit

  1. Clinical evidence from research trials is poorly translated into clinical practice in the NHS.
    We owe our patients evidence-based aeatments, and it is essential for every clinician to be aware of relevant guidelines (often, but not always evidence-based) and to continually engage in Clinical Audit, to compare their clinical practice with these guidelines / evidence-based practice.

    Without audit, we are in danger of losing our way, and engaging in poor non-evidence-based clinical practice, which is commonly seen.

    UHL has a very supportive team that promotes good clinical audit, with a great deal of information on the process available on the appropriate webpages of INsite.
