Medical audit among Scottish child psychiatrists

  • H. G. Morton (a1), R. J. R. McCabe (a2), W. Parry-Jones (a3) and J. Pickett (a4)
Extract

Working for Patients (DOH, 1989) has provided considerable impetus to the development of medical audit. The Royal College of Psychiatrists (1989) Preliminary Report on Medical Audit defined and distinguished between clinical audit, peer review and performance indicators, and referred to some of the particular problems affecting the development of audit in psychiatric practice. There are special concerns for child and adolescent psychiatrists developing medical audit programmes because of the wide diversity of child and adolescent practice and the considerable variability of resources in the subspecialty. Nicol (1989) has described the initial concern of the National Child Psychiatry Section's Working Group on audit with the Korner Report (HMSO, 1982) and the proposals on performance indicators outlined by the DHSS in 1987.
