About the Authors
  • The application of audit to resource allocation and clinical practice has emerged as a fundamental principle in Western medical systems over recent years. Used effectively, audit can have wide-ranging benefits for both the patient and the practitioner, in terms of resource management and quality of care. To set up an efficient and productive audit facility requires careful planning and may encounter resistance. This book provides a detailed account of audit processes and discusses the application of audit in a variety of medical settings. It is both a thoughtful review and a practical guide to successful medical audit, the collection and utilization of information for effective resource management and improved patient care, in the hospital and in the community.

    • Medical audit is a very topical and important subject area
    • A practical guide for clinicians in setting up effective audit systems
    • A very user-friendly book, sympathetic to the clinician's needs
    • Writtten by experts from the Department of Health
