Quality & Audit
NZ health services use best practice guidelines for delivery of patient centered acute and rehabilitation stroke services. Stroke guidelines and service specifications inform our standards of clinical practice and service delivery.
Audit in healthcare is a process used by health professionals to assess, evaluate and improve care of patients in a systematic way. Audit tools measure current practice against a defined (desired) standard. It forms part of clinical governance, which aims to safeguard a high quality of clinical care for patients.
