An audit of the care of diabetics in a group practice. (1/2549)

The diabetics in a general practice of 20,175 patients were identified during one year and 119 were found-a prevalence of 5.9 per thousand.The age and sex distribution, method of treatment, criteria of diabetic control, complications, and present method of care were analysed from the medical records to examine the process of medical care of a chronic disease in general practice.  (+info)

Prevalence of true vein graft aneurysms: implications for aneurysm pathogenesis. (2/2549)

BACKGROUND: Circumstantial evidence suggests that arterial aneurysms have a different cause than atherosclerosis and may form part of a generalized dilating diathesis. The aim of this study was to compare the rates of spontaneous aneurysm formation in vein grafts performed either for popliteal aneurysms or for occlusive disease. The hypothesis was that if arterial aneurysms form a part of a systemic process, then the rates of vein graft aneurysms should be higher for patients with popliteal aneurysms than for patients with lower limb ischemia caused by atherosclerosis. METHODS: Infrainguinal vein grafting procedures performed from 1990 to 1995 were entered into a prospective audit and graft surveillance program. Aneurysmal change was defined as a focal increase in the graft diameter of 1.5 cm or greater, excluding false aneurysms and dilatations after graft angioplasty. RESULTS: During the study period, 221 grafting procedures were performed in 200 patients with occlusive disease and 24 grafting procedures were performed in 21 patients with popliteal aneurysms. Graft surveillance revealed spontaneous aneurysm formation in 10 of the 24 bypass grafts (42%) for popliteal aneurysms but in only 4 of the 221 grafting procedures (2%) that were performed for chronic lower limb ischemia. CONCLUSION: This study provides further evidence that aneurysmal disease is a systemic process, and this finding has clinical implications for the treatment of popliteal aneurysms.  (+info)

The one-stop dyspepsia clinic--an alternative to open-access endoscopy for patients with dyspepsia. (3/2549)

The most sensitive investigative tool for the upper gastrointestinal tract is endoscopy, and many gastroenterologists offer an open-access endoscopy service to general practitioners. However, for patients with dyspepsia, endoscopy is not always the most appropriate initial investigation, and the one-stop dyspepsia clinic allows for different approaches. We have audited, over one year, the management and outcomes of patients attending a one-stop dyspepsia clinic. All patients seen in the clinic were included, and for those not endoscoped the notes were reviewed one year after the end of the study to check for reattendances and diagnoses originally missed. Patients' and general practitioners' views of the service were assessed by questionnaire. 485 patients were seen, of whom 301 (62%) were endoscoped at first attendance. In 66 patients (14%), endoscopy was deemed inappropriate and only one of these returned subsequently for endoscopy. 118 patients (24%) were symptom-free when seen in the clinic and were asked to telephone for an appointment if and when symptoms recurred; half of these returned and were endoscoped. Oesophagitis and duodenal ulcer were significantly more common in this 'telephone endoscopy' group than in those endoscoped straight from the clinic. Overall, 25% of patients referred were not endoscoped. Important additional diagnoses were made from the clinic consultation. General practitioners and patients valued the system, in particular the telephone endoscopy service. 84% of general practitioners said they would prefer the one-stop dyspepsia clinic to open-access endoscopy.  (+info)

Physician management in primary care. (4/2549)

Minimal explicit consensus criteria in the management of patients with four indicator conditions were established by an ad hoc committee of primary care physicians practicing in different locations. These criteria were then applied to the practices of primary care physicians located in a single community by abstracting medical records and obtaining questionnaire data about patients with the indicator conditions. A standardized management score for each physician was used as the dependent variable in stepwise regression analysis with physician/practice and patient/disease characteristics as the candidate independent variables. For all physicians combined, the mean management scores were high, ranging from .78 to .93 for the four conditions. For two of the conditions, care of the normal infant and pregnant woman, the management scores were better for pediatricians and obstetricians respectively than for family physicians. For the other two conditions, adult onset diabetes and congestive heart failure, there were no differences between the management scores of family physicians and internists. Patient/disease characteristics did not contribute significantly to explaining the variation in the standardized management scores.  (+info)

Adjunctive therapy in epilepsy: a cost-effectiveness comparison of two AEDs. (5/2549)

The objective of this study was to compare the relative cost-effectiveness of two AEDs by a prospective clinical audit. Patients starting on the adjunctive therapies lamotrigine and topiramate were recruited from the out-patient epilepsy clinics at Queen Square. Three interview were scheduled: baseline; three months follow-up and six months from baseline. Of the 81 patients recruited, a total of 73 patients completed all three interviews. An intention to treat analysis was performed on the data. Seizure severity and frequency were assessed using the National Hospital Seizure Severity Scale. Side-effects, adverse events and reasons for stopping medication were also recorded. At the third interview, a total of 47/73 (64%) were still on the prescribed adjunctive drug. Outcome was assessed by two methods: the > 50% seizure reduction cited in the literature and a more stringent assessment of patient 'satisfaction' which we defined operationally on clinical criteria. Using this definition, a total of 10/73 (14%) patients were 'satisfied'. The relative costs of starting patients on each of the two AEDs were calculated, both drug costs and the costs of adverse events (the latter were defined as events requiring urgent medical attention). The costs of the two drugs were compared. A number of methodological issues relating to cost comparison are discussed. Outcome and pharmaco-economic studies need to assess more than reduction in number of seizures. They should take into account variables important for quality of life including side-effects and adverse events.  (+info)

Readability of patient information leaflets on antiepileptic drugs in the UK. (6/2549)

The Audit Commission in the UK recommends that patient information leaflets (PILs) should be audited by health professionals using a formal readability test. However, no such study on antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) has been identified in a Medline search. The aim of this study was to audit the readability of PILs prepared for marketed proprietary AEDs in the UK. Twelve PILs were compared with six antiepileptic drug articles from medical journals and six headline articles from UK newspapers. The Gunning Fog index and the Flesch Reading Ease index were calculated for each PIL and article. The results of the Gunning Fog index and the Flesch Reading Ease score were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis non-parametric test. PILs were shown to have a statistically significant lower mean reading age than the medical articles and newspapers (P < 0.001). The Gunning Fog index and Flesch Reading Ease score showed that PILs had a mean reading age of 8.8 and mean readability score of 69, respectively. In conclusion, the PILs prepared for proprietary antiepileptic drugs in the UK are suitable for the reading age of the general adult population.  (+info)

Agreeing criteria for audit of the management of induced abortion: an approach by national consensus survey. (7/2549)

OBJECTIVE: To obtain a national consensus view of suggested criteria for good quality care in induced abortion to serve as a basis for standards for audit to assess current clinical practice. DESIGN: Postal, questionnaire survey assessing consensus agreement with criteria identified from a literature review and refined by an invited panel of four gynaecologists and the gynaecology audit project in Scotland (GAPS) committee. SETTING: Scotland. SUBJECTS: All 132 practising consultant gynaecologists. MAIN MEASURES: Overall level of agreement with each of 20 suggested audit criteria. RESULTS: 121 completed questionnaires were received (response rate 92%), of which 119 were returned in time for analysis; 107 came from consultants who practised abortion routinely and were included in the analysis. Nineteen of 20 suggested criteria were validated by an overall balance of agreement. The most strongly supported criterion (agreement score +93) was for ascertaining rhesus status of the woman and prophylaxis after abortion, if indicated. The only criterion to elicit a negative agreement score (-27) was that dilatation and evacuation is the best method of abortion at 12-15 weeks' gestation. The ranked and prioritised criteria resulting from this exercise are being used within a national audit project. CONCLUSIONS: A postal questionnaire survey among interested clinicians resulted in a good response rate and enabled the audit criteria to be validated and ranked more objectively and among more clinicians, than would have been possible by group discussion.  (+info)

Incompleteness and retrieval of case notes in a case note audit of colorectal cancer. (8/2549)

Hospital case notes are a crucial source of data but are subject to two major biases: incompleteness of data and non-retrieval. To assess these biases in relation to colorectal cancer a study was performed of all cases of colorectal cancer listed in the Thames cancer registry in patients resident in one of four districts in South Thames regions with a diagnosis in 1988. Five medical record sites were involved. Retrieval rate for all case notes for districts combined was 80%. In two districts the rates were too high for further investigation; in the other two respectively patient survival and whether treatment was given were positively associated with retrieval. Among the four districts incompleteness of notes ranged from 38% to 62% for staging, 8% to 40% for treatment, and 70% to 25% for diagnostic tests. Information about treatment was missing in 3% to 20%; survival data were omitted in less than 5%. In all districts completeness of case notes was inadequate and in some non-retrieval compounded the problem. Missing data reduce the quality of cancer registry data and potentially undermine interpretation of epidemiological studies and evaluation of care. Further research is warranted into the standards and resourcing of medical records departments and their effects on retrieval and data quality. Structured proformas could be applied across specialties to identify missing items in case notes, to identify areas where standards are required, or to audit notes where standards have already been agreed. A staging protocol to set standards for colorectal cancer has been adopted in one district, and a prospective audit is being established.  (+info)

One of the biggest financial burdens on any medical practice is that of medical audit. Even though it is a necessary evil in the healthcare industry, medical audits setback the financial growth of any practice and initiates change in an otherwise streamlined medical practice. The best way to prepare your chiropractic clinic for a medical audit is by eliminating any chances of audit altogether. Most medical audits originate due to billing failures, repeated claim denials and customer complains. All these issues can be effectively captured in the billing processes and can be easily fixed..

Each year, the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) is required to prepare a risk-based audit plan which sets out the priorities of the internal audit activity, consistent with the organizations goals and priorities. The audit planning process is aligned with the Departments strategic objectives. The input from the Departmental Audit Committee (DAC) and senior management is considered in setting audit priorities.. The starting point for the risk-based planning process is the audit universe which is comprised of NRCans auditable entities. These auditable entities include programs, activities, processes, policies and initiatives which collectively contribute to the achievement of the Departments strategic objectives. The Audit Branch used NRCans Program Activity Architecture (PAA) as well as an inventory of external legislated services to help assess completeness of the audit universe. The NRCan audit universe includes 120 auditable entities.. All programs, projects, activities, processes, policies ...

The audit and feedback process comprises one or more cycles of establishing best practice criteria, measuring current practice, feeding back findings, implementing changes, and further monitoring. This chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Feedback effects can be weakened by information-intention gaps (feedback fails to convince recipients that change is necessary), intention-behaviour gaps (intentions are not translated into action), or behaviour-impact gaps (actions do not yield the desired effect on patient care).9 The success of national audit programmes depends on local arrangements that promote action as well as measurement.10. A synthesis of 65 qualitative evaluations proposed ways of designing audit programmes to better align with local capacity, identity, and culture and to promote greater changes in clinical behaviour.11 Healthcare organisations have finite capacity, so audit programmes should be designed so that they require less work, make best use of limited local resources, ...

Long-term Regulatory Agenda. The presentation also identifies two long-term regulatory goals to implement certain provisions of the HITECH Act. One regulation will relate to providing individuals harmed by HIPAA violations with a percentage of any civil monetary penalties or settlements collected by OCR, while the second will implement a HITECH Act provision related to the accounting of disclosures of PHI.. Audit Program Status. The presentation discussed the current status of OCRs audit program. As we have previously discussed, OCR is in the process of conducting desk audits of covered entities and business associates. These audits consist of a review of required HIPAA documentation that is submitted to OCR. According to Ms. Peters, OCR has conducted desk audits of 166 covered entities and 43 business associates. Ms. Peters also used the presentation to confirm that on-site audits of both covered entities and business associates will be conducted in 2017 after the desk audits are completed. We ...
Why this is important:- There is wide variation across the UK in style, staffing and resources of cardiac rehabilitation programmes. Participation in cardiac rehabilitation after an acute MI significantly reduces mortality and improves quality of life. However, data from the 2012 Myocardial Infarction National Audit Project (MINAP) highlight that only 44% of all patients take part in cardiac rehabilitation after an MI. This falls far short of the National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease (2000) target of more than 85% of people discharged from hospital after an acute MI. National audit data also highlight that patients are waiting on average 53 days to start the exercise component (Phase III) after an acute MI. Early cardiac rehabilitation (defined as attendance at a cardiac rehabilitation orientation appointment within 10 days) significantly improves attendance and is also cost-saving through reduced incidence of unplanned cardiac re-admissions ...

This study aimed to examine weather internal audit resources and competencies, internal audit activities i.e. the level of involvement of internal auditors in risk management activities together with the internal audit department level of interaction with audit committees has a significant impact on the level of internal audit effectiveness in the Tanzania commercial banks,keeping in mind that this function is now a mandatory requirement as per the Banking and Financial Institutions Act 2006.The results suggested that internal auditing in Tanzania commercial banks is still embracing traditional approach to internal auditing which is primarily concerned with compliance and monitoring rather than a value added approach to internal auditing. Although the Banking and Financial Institution Act (2006) explicitly requires risk management and corporate governance activities to be carried out by internal auditors in commercial banks, the results of this study deliberate that, there is no evidence to ...
The audit committee has always played a pivotal role in corporate governance, and changes to EU audit legislation in 2016 have seen it assume even greater importance in promoting confidence in the audit.. The key change centers on the audit committees responsibility for the appointment of the external auditor, which was previously a management board decision with some input from the audit committee. For the first time, the committee must have the skills to assess the performance of their current auditor and the quality of the audit, as well as identifying buying criteria for future tenders.. The new regime also requires the audit committee to recommend two audit firms for appointment, expressing a preference for one. This demands a comparative assessment. To do this, the committee will have to assess not only technical competence, but also softer factors such as working relationship, the character of the team and the sector expertise each auditor offers.. Ensuring a competitive tender process ...

You can take the data offline via the Microsoft Office 365 Management API. This API provides a number of ways to accumulate the data from your Office 365 tenant into an offline data store of some form. This can be done by registering a web hook that tells Office 365 what events you want to be notified about (Data is PUSHED to your solution), or you can request the data via a REST call to the API (You PULL the data that you want.). Just recently, I had a client that had built an HR system in Office 365 for storing documents relating to the Employees in their organisation. Now this information is obviously very sensitive and controlling who has access to this data is obviously one of the strengths of SharePoint Online with its highly configurable permission model. However no system is perfect and as ever the admins could give themselves or others permission to access content that they should not perhaps have. This is where auditing comes to the fore as data within the audit cannot be deleted or ...

Improving treatment adherence is at the heart of clinical psychiatry. It requires building a therapeutic relationship with patients, understanding their needs and tailoring treatment accordingly. Monitoring treatment adherence is a continuous process during which the need to continue medication in the long term is regularly stressed. We need to identify the barriers and help patients and carers to overcome these. This can only be achieved if the treatment is regularly monitored for its efficacy, side-effect burden and acceptability to patients.. This audit presents a rather disappointing picture of the conversation about treatment adherence, which is not common in clinical encounters. Such discussions took place in just half of the consultations, whereas questions about possible side-effects and response to medication were raised even less frequently. The first variable improved to about 60% after regular reminders and inclusion of this topic in the junior doctor induction, but this result was ...
We read Dr Lim and Dr Woodheads update on the British Thoracic Society (BTS) 2009/2010 community acquired pneumonia (CAP) audit with interest and noted the high inpatient mortality rate of 18.3%.1 As a contributing site, we received a useful summary of our data in comparison with the national data and local mortality rates for severe CAP (CURB65 3-5) were 21.4% versus 42.6% nationally. This provoked an examination of local severe CAP admissions between December 2009 and May 2011 (n=169) that found 25% mortality with age, gender and comorbidity distributions similar to national audit data. We suspect variations in case definitions may be important in understanding differences between local and national data.. The Thorax report focuses on adherence to local antibiotic guidelines. Nationally, 55.5% of patients received antibiotics in line with local prescribing policies (64% in severe CAP), but there was no association between adherence and mortality.1 From our 18-month severe CAP data, over 89% ...

Conducting a self-review based on the audit protocols can help BAs prepare for desk audits; it can also help BAs and CEs get ready for the more exhaustive on-site audits. And as OCR steps up investigations of breaches large and small-while cyberthreats continue to mount-the audit protocols offer a blueprint that can help an organization identify and address risks. Following protocols The phase two audit protocols were built on the phase one protocols and updated to include changes made by the 2013 HIPAA omnibus final rule. (For more information on the phase two audit protocols, see the July issue of BOH.) The updates also include information specifically for BAs. But the protocols are useful beyond simply checking boxes for audited organizations: Any CE or BA can use them to evaluate compliance.

Topeka Gov. Kathleen Sebelius 2003 order to sell state vehicles saved more money than previously reported, but the reduction in fleet has led to some problems, according to a new audit.. Sebelius administration officials said the report released last week justified their budget-cutting move.. We believed we had too many cars, said Duane Goossen, Sebelius budget director and administration secretary.. Sebelius, a Democrat, has used the sale of state cars as an example of how she reduced government waste. But Republicans, who hold significant majorities in the Legislature, have long claimed Sebelius overstated the savings.. I dont think we saved any money, state Sen. Les Donovan, R-Wichita, said..

Regardless of the type, however, these audits have a significant impact on your import department and what is required if your company is selected to participate. This webinar will discuss current CBP audit methods and what importers may expect.. ...
Audit and feedback had an influence on antimicrobial prescription patterns in the ICU with a favorable impact on the emergence of resistance.
It is evident that the majority of mainstream software programs are shit, and while audits and the creators of a specific software program can tell one much about the quality of said software, audits can be fabricated and the user should look at the program itself instead of looking at who made it and where it came from. If more individuals studied computer engineering/science and programming and were able to audit programs, we would become stronger, and one could rest assured that their computer was tested to perfection. I have begun to notice that a major problem with auditing code is the fact that some software programs are massive and require teams to finish in a practical amount of time (Or one individual with ultimate dedication...), and this can be fixed by advocating for single purpose programs with lean code and minimal features with room for the user to build and add to it. Computers are amazing machines, and every individual with a laptop and a great mind can achieve amazing feats! ...

This article demonstrates a method for teaching students to conduct audit studies of discrimination. The assignment can be used in courses on quantitative methods, race, gender, or other topics. Audit studies test for unequal treatment by having otherwise identical pairs of people who vary on a single trait, such as race or gender, apply for the same sets of opportunities, such as apartment vacancies or job openings. Once intricate and expensive to conduct, the online shift of the past 15 years has streamlined the approach, enabling researchers to execute audits via email. ...

Let us start with clarifying a common misunderstanding that the terms audits and inspections are interchangeable. Although inspections and audits share their commitment to quality by assuring compliance to laws and regulations and by protecting the rights, safety and welfare of patients, there is a clear difference. Basically an audit is a quality tool to test ones own quality process and an inspection is a check by a third party (usually authorities) of the output of ones quality system.. On the one hand, the audit is defined by ISO 14155:2011 as a systematic independent examination of activities and documents related to clinical investigation to determine whether these activities were conducted, and the data recorded, analysed and accurately reported, according to the CIP [Clinical Investigation Plan], standard operating procedures, this International Standard and applicable regulatory requirements. It is, as such, a method to ensure the quality of all processes. After all, as defined by ...
A one year audit was undertaken of the mental health (MH) status of adult attendees to the Thames Valley Sexual Assault Centres (SARC). There were 301 relevant referrals over the twelve month period of whom 126 (42%) either fully or partially completed the mental health assessments. 38% (n = 66) of the population did not consent to the research. Participation in the study was felt inappropriate by the case clinician in the rest of the cases. To summarise the findings: 36% were moderately or severely depressed; 30% experienced moderate to severe anxiety; 28% were drinking at hazardous/harmful levels; and 12% had a drug problem that was moderate to severe ...

A quarter of people with diabetes are not getting an annual check that is vital for picking up the early signs of kidney failure, according to a new analysis by Diabetes UK.According to the analysis, based on National Diabetes Audit data, 25 per cent of people with diabetes in England were not recorded as having the urine check (called a urinary albumin) during 2010/11. The situation is only slightly better in Wales, where 21.6 per cent did not get a check during the same period.
Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide. The top priority of secondary prevention is to control modifiable risk factors. However, current cardiovascular risk factor management remains inadequate and monitoring programs, like clinical audits, are lacking. Objectives: i| to summarize the importance of clinical audits in daily practice; ii| to describe CVD risk factor recording and management in routine practice; iii| to assess potential determinants within and between different geographic regions; and iv| to summarize the use of cardiovascular medication in China. Results: The consistency and representativeness of existing clinical audits were still limited. SURF CHD (SUrvey of Risk Factors Coronary Heart Disease) was a straightforward and targeted clinical audit to simplify the recording and monitoring of routine CVD risk factors. SURF recruited 10,186 CHD patients in 11 countries among three different regions (Europe, Asia, and the Middle East). Recording
This study aims to determine the audit tenure as the moderating influence of firm size on audit report lag. The population in this research is manufacturing companies listed in Indonesia Stock Exchange 2009-2014 period. The samples used as many as 34 companies by purposive sampling method. The analysis technique used is Moderated Regression Analysis (MRA). Based on the analysis and hypothesis testing, then we got the conclusion that (1) the size of the companys negative effect on the audit report lag which shows that the bigger the company, the shorter the audit report lag, (2) tenure audit able to moderate (strengthen) the effect of firm size on audit report lag which shows that companies are audited by an auditor to audit the long tenure has a level of audit report lag is low. Completion of the audit will be faster if the auditors audit the audit firm with long tenure at a large company.

In a statement, EY said: Audit quality is an ongoing focus and priority to EY, however we recognise that we fell short of our professional standards on three matters in relation to the audit of Tech Data Limited (formerly Computer 2000 Distribution Limited) for the financial year ending 31 January 2012.. EY is committed to performing high quality audits and has established a long-term audit quality programme in the UK and a dedicated Audit Quality Board, which are aligned to the steps we have taken globally. We also continue to invest in new technology, data analytics software and training for our people. The results of the latest inspection report from the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) recognises the significant level of investment EY has made in audit quality, particularly over the last three years, and demonstrate our continued progress.. EY continues to listen and act upon feedback from the FRC, as well as conducting its own reviews of EYs audit practice.. The firm has also agreed ...
Background. Data on potential variations in delivery of appropriate stroke care over time are scarce. We investigated temporal changes in the quality of acute hospital stroke care across five national audits in Europe over a period of six years. Methods. Data were derived from national stroke audits in Germany, Poland, Scotland, Sweden, and England/Wales/Northern Ireland participating within the European Implementation Score (EIS) collaboration. Temporal changes in predefined quality indicators with comparable information between the audits were investigated. Multivariable logistic regression analyses were performed to estimate adherence to quality indicators over time. Results. Between 2004 and 2009, individual data from 542,112 patients treated in 538 centers participating continuously over the study period were included. In most audits, the proportions of patients who were treated on a SU, were screened for dysphagia, and received thrombolytic treatment increased over time and ranged from ...

Clinical audit-the systematic assessment and improvement of the quality of care-is now an essential requirement of all clinicians by the government. Clinical audit of the process of myocardial infarction has been performed both in this country and elsewhere for several years,1-3 although the majority of work is performed within individual hospitals rather than in collaboration with colleagues in other hospitals. It has tended to concentrate on the use of thrombolytic treatment. Recent evidence from 15 hospitals examined between 1993 and 1997 showed only patchy improvement in delays from a call for help to treatment. Some hospitals where there were long delays before thrombolytic treatment showed no improvement over that time.4 It was clear from these data that in some hospitals either the incentive or the facilities to improve performance, at least in this area, was lacking.. The National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease,5 has been compiled with advice from cardiologists and others ...

Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) may be associated with high rates of inappropriate transfusion with some studies indicating rates of up to 50 per cent non-compliance with established guidelines. The current British Committee for Standards in Haematology (BCSH) guidelines on the use of FFP aim to reinforce the message regarding avoidance of its inappropriate use. An audit of FFP use in 2007 in the South Central region, revealed that FFP was used for warfarin reversal in 26 per cent of the cases audited. FFP weight related dosage was poorly implemented with weight being recorded in only 32 per cent of cases. The 2009 National Comparative Audit (NCA) programme indicated that FFP continued to be used for warfarin reversal and, was frequently given where there was no evidence of actual bleeding. An audit of FFP use in the South West in one large hospital, found that following a period of intensive educational measures, appropriate use of FFP improved dramatically, particularly with respect to use for ...

This paper analyses the most significant developments in the audit methodology since 1990 that are related to the transition from the audit methodology based on the risk of financial statements to the methodology based on the performance process risk. Such developments in the audit methodology are presented as a result of a new approach towards risk assessment or an outcome of the new paradigm. On the other hand, the risk factors related to the performance assessment are examined and analysed as an inherent part of a performance audit. The article also deals with the general risk factors of economy, efficiency and effectiveness, introduces the performance audit efficiency model that identifies significant areas to be audited and possible research aspects ...

Mr. Chairman - In my opinion, there is no more important issue confronting the Board than ensuring the independence, objectivity and professional skepticism of auditors as they conduct their audits.. Both our own PCAOB inspection reports and those of many of our international counterparts recognize that more must be done in this area.. Whether the answer is mandatory rotation, re-tendering, greater transparency of audit tenure, enhanced independent audit committees, or any of the other recommendations that resulted from our first roundtable discussion - or those that may be offered today - I believe that all alternatives must be thoroughly considered to further shareholder trust in the quality of the audit.. I believe that the public policy making process is best served by hearing from all interested parties in an open, deliberative process. While some of the recommendations we have heard so far are within the SECs jurisdiction - not ours - I think the hearing record we are creating may serve ...

A review by the National Audit Office of early action has concluded that this approach has the potential to result in better outcomes and greater value for money. Early action is the early deployment of resources by public bodies to prevent problems occurring or getting worse in service provision, rather than spending money reactively once those problems have occurred.. Government has signalled its commitment to the principle of early action but there is little evidence of a concerted shift in resources to early action projects, or cross-government coordination, either in consistent definition and measurement or in establishing adequate support structures. Determined leadership is necessary to divert resources away from pressing and highly visible current needs, in line with public expectations, towards long-term early action programmes, particularly at times of fiscal austerity.. Strong evidence of early actions impact and cost-effectiveness is thin on the ground within current projects. ...

Objective:. Leadership is an integral part of clinical medicine but as junior doctors, we do not realise how many times we use our unacknowledged leadership skills to perform certain actions. As part of Leadership in clinical medicine module that I undertook, I carried out a service improvement project to bring a positive change in the organisation. Reflecting on the project as a respiratory registrar, I realise the importance of the need of incorporating the sense of developing leadership skills right from the start.. Methods:. Attending study days comprising of lectures on history, qualitative and quantitative research methods, ethics, team dynamic, leadership styles, setting up services etc, I combined quantitative (previous audit data) and qualitative data (observational and informal interviews) to improve the care for the patients with pleural effusions and measures were taken to implement the outcome.. Discussion:. As a registrar it was a challenge to bring change to already setup ...
