Clinical Audit and the ESR Clinical Audit Tool

Clinical audit is inextricably linked to quality and, if correctly and professionally conducted, a powerful tool to improve patient care, experience and outcome. 

The ESR Clinical audit tool is designed to facilitate the development of local clinical audit across the spectrum of the services provided by clinical radiology and support radiology departments in establishing an developing their clinical audit programme.

The ESR Clinical Audit tool has been published under the name of Esperanto.

Further details are available here.
