This audit module is designed to be used when you want to determine how your systems, policies, procedures and processes support best practice in the care of older people.
It looks at how the policies and procedures regarding your ward’s model of care optimise an older patient’s participation in their care and encourage their family and carer to be included as part of the care team.
You may use this audit module on its own or as part of an audit of other aspects of policy and procedure, or of the physical space.
We recommend that this audit module be used in conjunction with the ‘Bedside orientation’ audit module. The ‘Bedside orientation’ audit module is designed to be used with every patient, on admission or after a transfer. Consider incorporating the use of the ‘Bedside orientation’ audit module into your hospital or ward policies and procedures.
This audit module contains 15 questions and will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
