Questionnaire timeline and tally sheet
We've made a suggested timeline for hospitals preparing to hand out the questionnaires and the tally sheet for the carer questionnaire. Please contact us to receive an emailed copy of the carer questionnaire total distribution spreadsheet, if you've not received this already.
Scoring was used in Round 3 of the audit. This will be repeated in Round 4 for easy comparison between hospitals on the different themes of the audit. The Round 4 National Report will compare results and scores for each hospital with the results from Round 3. See the guidance for the scoring system (pdf).

Round 4 includes a spotlight audit module with data collection in 2019.
This is likely to be the module on psychotropic medication prescription.
This module will form part of the Quality Account in 2019 and we will let you know about the timeline and asked registration for this separately (in Autumn 2018).
