The course supports RCVS’ Practice Standard Scheme changes.
Clinical audits and the benefits they bring to teams, clients and animals are to be covered in the second series of RCVS Knowledge’s free educational course, ‘QI Boxset’.
The course, which launched on Tuesday (30 November), aims to help practitioners implement Quality Improvement (QI) in practice – a topic that will be most relevant to Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) accredited practices owing to a series of updates to the requirements announced earlier this year.
Open to the whole practice team, the topics covered in the series include starting out with audits and carrying out audits. There are also real-life examples of teams that have used audits, together with bite-sized content containing webinars, podcasts and reading resources.
Welcoming the series, David Ashcroft, lead PPS Assessor, said: “The latest update to the Practice Standards Scheme has reflected the value and importance of clinical audit by including it at General Practice level, so a lot more practices may wish to seek guidance. RCVS Knowledge remains the perfect place to start, and the Boxset is an extremely user-friendly resource.”
Pam Mosedale, QI clinical lead at RCVS Knowledge, added: “The RCVS Knowledge team have been working hard on producing these free resources to support veterinary teams, and I am delighted that the series is now available.
“The benefits that clinical audits bring to practice is massive, but we understand it may seem difficult to know where to start. This series features a huge number of resources from teams who have identified the benefits of clinical audit for themselves, and we hope they will be both useful and inspiring. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all the contributors.”
