Policy and procedure: Sensory and thermal environment

This audit module is designed to be used when you want to determine how your systems, policies, procedures and processes can help optimise the sensory and thermal environment experienced by patients.

It looks at how light, noise, smells, textures and temperature influence an older patient’s participation in their care.

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.

This audit module contains 11 questions and will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.

Start the sensory and thermal environment audit.
