Definitions of Research, Service Evaluation and Audits and link to Clinical Audit service
- Audit – Audits are specifically designed to measure if we are meeting existing standards for example policies or guidelines
- Service Evaluation – Service Evaluations are used to check if the service is achieving what it set out to achieve. Service evaluations measure any combination of whether the service is; safe, a good experience and clinically effective. Utilisation and cost-benefit is also sometimes included.
- Research – Research enables us to ask specific questions with scientifically sound methods in the hope of creating new knowledge which may be generalisable or transferrable.
