Audit: Description of Change

6. Description of change

The essence of audit is to change practice in order to improve patient care and services. This section should adequately describe any change that was discussed, agreed and introduced to practice by the team.  The role of others involved in this process should also be described.  An explicit example of the change that was introduced should be attached in evidence as an appendix to the report, where this is possible.  Examples could include a new or amended protocol, guideline or flow chart that is introduced to practice, or a letter that is sent to a group of patients inviting them in for a review or check.

Points to consider:

  • Adequately describe change to be implemented, together with the role of staff involved in this, and when and how it was implemented.
  • Attach an explicit example/illustration to provide evidence of the change that was introduced, where this is possible.
