- This book is aimed at hospital doctors in search of practical ideas for medical audit within their own specialty, but it will also be helpful to other clinical professions to show some of the ideas that have been developed in other specialties. It collates published work and practical experience of many workshops, audits and discussions in the United Kingdom and overseas. The first chapters deal with general issues of organisation, methods and resources. The remainder apply these principles to individual specialties. Many of the methods and findings of one specialty could easily be applied laterally to others.
