Audit methods compared

The Journal

An audit is an audit is an audit. Well, it is a bit more complicated than that, as these articles illustrate.

A traditional audit uses pre-defined standards against which performance can be measured and, subsequently, changes can be implemented in light of the results. An IMPACT audit includes a first step which identifies the perspectives of those professionals and patients involved before continuing with a traditional audit. The subject covered in this issue — prescription “owings” in community pharmacy — is examined using both audit methods and both reports are worth reading by anyone thinking of embarking on some simple study in the near future.
