Description:
Quality and Patient Safety Audit (QPSA) provides internal independent assurance within the defined responsibility of the HSE National Director of Quality and Patient Safety. Established in late 2010, it is a new function which complements and augments the existing Level 1 (Quality & Risk self assessment) and Level 3 (Internal Audit) functions within the HSE by filling the Level 2 assurance gap for clinical and social services and thus completing the HSE Assurance Framework. As part of the overall Quality and Patient Safety Directorate (QPSD), QPSA plays a key role in driving the quality improvement agenda through promoting accountability for quality and patient safety. QPSA promotes a system which recognises and applies the values of transparency, honesty and candour; this is achieved through conducting audits to assess compliance with standards, and making recommendations to achieve the required standard. Progress on the implementation1 of recommendations is requested by QPSA, and is subject to validation and re-audit. As the national monitoring and learning function is developed, audit recommendations will be used as an integral part of performance analysis, trending, and as an indicator for intervention. In 2012, QPSA expanded its range of audits undertaken by conducting audits on Service Level Agreements; carrying out external validation for a National Point Prevalence Survey; and providing consultancy on the National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare.
