Date: 27th September 2018
Time: 9.00 – 17.00
Location: Clayton Hotel Leopardstown, Sandyford Business District, Central Park, Dublin 18

HCI’s Quality Audit Training is designed to educate health and social care professionals on the skills and techniques required to effectively conduct audits in their organisations.

Auditing is a structured process that allows healthcare organisations to independently collect information on the efficiency and reliability of their services. Audits help to provide assurance that controls and procedures are operating in accordance with best practice and with the appropriate regulations. Audits are also an essential tool in improving the quality of health care provision by enabling Quality Improvements Plans to be identified and created.

Who should attend?

This training session is relevant to anyone within a health or social care organisation who is involved with the auditing process.
