The aim of this tool is to allow you to carry out an audit of your prescribing practices over a 2 or three month period. You will be recording your prescribing data for all patients for whom you issue a prescription over the period you select and audit against relevant published guidelines.
Once you have completed the audit you will receive a compliance report of the patients for whom you issued a prescription. The most important section of the report for this audit is Reasons for prescribing. If you score a ‘possible justification for’ or ‘inappropriate prescribing’ you should examine the reason for this and develop an action plan for improvement.
You will then be able to test your improvement by conducting a second audit
The following data show the progress of the audit. These are aggregated data from all participants. Any new responses that you add will be updated overnight.
