dc.descriptionThis report summarises the current state of clinical audit in Ireland. In addition, it provides guidance and recommendations to ensure that clinical audit can continue to be developed as an essential patient safety tool in Ireland promoting improved patient outcomes. To produce this report, terms of reference were drawn up in October 2018. Subsequently, the Project Manager, the Working Group, the Steering Committee, and the Advisory Panel were appointed in early November 2018. Membership of the Working Group and the Steering Committee included patient representatives, senior HSE leaders and clinicians, and individuals with clinical audit expertise. The Working Group and Steering Committee held six and five meetings, respectively; a number of subcommittees were also established and engaged in regular correspondence. Advisory Panel members were consulted as necessary, as were additional experts throughout the process. In addition to consultation with these experts, four focus group sessions were facilitated in three hospitals across Ireland. These focus groups provided invaluable feedback regarding the clinical audits under way at that time. They also highlighted the value of clinical audit, as well as the issues hindering its efficacy. A number of key findings were identified throughout the review process; these were based on feedback from the focus groups, consultation with experts, and an extensive review of national and international literature in the field of clinical audit.en_US
