CASC job satisfaction survey

As part of our third Clinical Auditorium event held on 13 January 2022 with Healthcare Conferences UK and entitled ‘Getting the most out of your clinical audit career’, we invited prospective delegates to complete a short pre-event survey. This was optional and anonymous. A total of 77 responses were attained via a short SurveyMonkey questionnaire. The survey asked clinical audit and QI professionals to provide quantitative and qualitative feedback on their current job. Questions focused on: overall job satisfaction, training and development opportunities, preferred place of work, workload and pay conditions. Participants were encouraged to tell us what resources they use to keep up to date with clinical audit and also provide details in terms of how their line managers enhance career prospects. The results of the survey are fascinating. You can read and download the full eight-page report here.

#CAAW22 resources are available

CASC are a small independent team who receive no central funding for ¢CAAW22. This year as part of Clinical Audit Awareness Week from 13 June to 17 June we will be supporting the audit and QI community in many ways. We are looking for our clinical auditor and clinical audit team of the year, honouring those who have working in our profession over 10 years, running breakfast, lunchtime and evening webinars, holding our 6-monthly clinical audit graduation ceremony and releasing the results of our twelfth annual survey. We are in the process of creating more placards to promote #CAAW22 and we will be updating the CASC Clinical Audit Dummies Guide. We are proud to be partnering with several organisations on new initiatives (watch this space!) we will have a strong social media presence, for example daily Twitter polls and snap prize giving events and competitions. We will be using #CAAW to showcase why audit is great but also to raise the serious questions that need to be answered by key leaders.

Apply for a CASC Training Scholarship!

We are delighted to be able to announce a new CASC initiative. The Clinical Audit Training Scholarship (CATS) creates an opportunity for those new to our profession to gain access to free accredited training and mentorship in 2022. CASC recognise that staff new to clinical audit benefit from appropriate training that helps them better understand what is considered best practice in clinical audit. It is important that new auditors understand common challenges and pitfalls that those working in our field often face. If you have worked in clinical audit for less than 12 months you can apply for a CASC scholarship that will enable you to attend the accredited Clinical Audit Masterclass (via Healthcare Conferences UK). Successful applicants will also receive mentorship from Stephen and Tracy. Take a closer look at what is on offer here.

Note: scholarships are open to NHS and non-NHS professionals and there is no closing date for applications.

Take a look at ‘stuff CASC like’

The CASC team like to keep as up-to-date as possible and we enjoy examining a wide range of materials and resources. This ‘stuff we like’ section does what it says on the tin! We will re-fresh this section of our homepage approximately every month and our aim is to focus on highlighting useful and ideally less mainstream materials that those working in audit, QI and patient safety will find stimulating and useful.
