Promoting quality for better health services HQIP National Clinical Audit Feedback Mechanism (NCAFM)
Introduction HQIP quality improvement strategy launched in November 2011 (1) Improving the national clinical audit programme Need to improve the functionality and effectiveness of the programme and address some issues raised by local and national stakeholders Feedback mechanism for NCAs launched – March 2012
What the system is designed for Highlighting examples of good practice within national clinical audit projects Making constructive suggestions for improvement to projects within the Quality Accounts list Highlighting ongoing or unresolved issues
What the system is not designed for Technical issues in relation to projects (these should be addressed to the relevant provider) Projects with national coverage which do not appear in the Quality Accounts list
Why it is important HQIP receives a great deal of constructive, anecdotal feedback regarding national clinical audits - both positive and covering areas people feel could be strengthened. NCAFM provides an effective on-line system that enables those involved in all aspects of participation in NCAs to comment on their experiences and make suggestions for improvement.
How the NCAFM works Easy to access via HQIP website home page Covers all QA projects via drop down box menu Designed to allow for continuous use and is analysed regularly by HQIP Results posted on website and fed back to project providers Entirely anonymous, but an feedback option is available
