Local Clinical Audits and Confidential Enquiries

Project lead: Alison Miller
Timescale: as commissioned
Summary: Against a background of government priorities in maternal and child health improvement CMACE receives requests to work with local healthcare and governmental bodies to help them conduct their own reviews of deaths or serious morbidity. The aim of every review is learn from adverse events by auditing care against recognised standards and to develop recommendations to improve practice and outcomes.
The reviews are carried out using confidential enquiry methodology developed by CMACE over many years of conducting national confidential enquiries in the field of maternal and perintal mortality and morbidity. The work is directly commissioned and is completely separate from CMACE work undertaken as part of national confidential enquiry. Costs are applied on a project by project basis depending on the size of the project. Reports usually remain confidential to local healthcare bodies involved.
