Description:
Clinical Audit has been described as a quality improvement process that seeks to improve patient care and outcomes through systematic review of care against explicit criteria. The process cycle has five elements, the first two of which overlap with the basic principles of information retrieval: identifying a problem or question; and finding criteria and standards against which to measure. We describe the evolving role of librarians in the clinical audit function of a major academic teaching hospital in Dublin, Ireland and demonstrate the benefits to our profession of aligning our work with the core strategic objectives of our parent organisation.
