Significant event audit



 

A form of audit. At a regular meeting team members focus on particular incidents considered significant, to learn and improve. It may be a process in which individual episodes, when there has been a significant occurrence either beneficial or deleterious, are analysed, in a systematic and detailed way to ascertain what can be learnt about the overall quality of care, and to indicate changes that might lead to future improvements.
