The Clinical Audit Support Centre would like to welcome you to our podcasting page. The service was initially established in 2008 and thus far we are the only organisation in the UK who produce regular podcasts looking at clinical audit and wider healthcare quality improvement initiatives.

If you are not familiar with the term, a podcast involves providing a digital media file that is distributed on the internet for playback on a personal computer or portable media player, such as an iPod or MP3 player. In lay terms, our podcasts will essentially serve as radio broadcasts and you will be able to listen to these via the iTunes store.

Since setting up the service we have aimed to produce approximately one podcast per month and broadcasts are recorded in a range of formats, including news updates, blogs, personal viewpoints, etc. We aim to use podcasting as a way of informing healthcare professionals of our work and key developments in the world of clinical audit and quality improvement. Hopefully this initiative will interest healthcare professionals and help create a more active clinical audit community in the UK. Furthermore, we aim to involve patients in the work that we undertake and help them to understand how quality assurance techniques work in the UK, and we view podcasting as an innovative medium to achieve this goal.

All podcasts that we produce are available free of charge, although there are conditions that must be followed in terms of their use. All materials are copyright of the Clinical Audit Support Centre and may not be altered or reproduced. Our podcasts are for personal use only and may not be re-broadcast without our written permission.
