Clinical oncology national audits are run by the Clinical Oncology Audit Committee. Members and Fellows may choose to undertake local re-audits after participating in a national project. Within each oncology department, there is usually a clinical oncology audit lead who liaises with the College. The College employs an audit officer to support audit work for its two Faculties.
Audit Library is a growing collection of audit templates, many with downloadable data collection forms which can be adapted for local use. The Library can provide ideas and methodologies for those looking for audits to undertake locally for revalidation or for planning the annual forward programme in clinical audit. College publications and guidance are an additional source of recommendations to audit against.
Clinical Oncology Audit Conference
The Committee also runs an annual audit conference, which comprises presentations and an audit poster competition. The Conference attracts CPD credits, and clinical oncology audit leads pay a discounted rate. Details about the 2014 Conference will be posted here.
