On 23rd September 2010, the Patient Safety First initiative was launched in response to recommendations of the Report of the Commission on Patient Safety and Quality Assurance – Building a Culture of Patient Safety (Department of Health and Children, 2008). A key component of the Patient Safety First initiative is the National Framework for Clinical Effectiveness. The purpose of this framework is to provide formal structures and processes to support clinical effectiveness. Clinical effectiveness involves a number of processes, but primary among these are: (i) the development or adaptation and use of clinical guidelines to support evidence-based practice; and (ii)the use of clinical audit to improve service user care and outcomes.
