We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a contract to conduct a further three years of audit, commencing in January 2020. View the NAD timeline (PDF) for an overview of audit activity.
The NAD: prospective ID in general hospitals will see exciting developments to the audit, as we consult on changing the data set to focus on the highest priority and lowest performing items. We will be working with 20 pilot hospitals in 2020 to identify, test and refine the sampling methodology and measures. Further details of which can be found below.
The next NAD also includes a spotlight audit on care provided in community-based memory services. See below for more details.
The NAD 2019 standards consultation is now closed, thank you to everyone who responded.
Expressions of interest will close at the end of December 2019.
Data collection for the main audit will take place in each of the three years of the audit, details of which can be seen in the audit timeline.
Registration for data collection will open later in the year once the pilot is underway.
We are inviting all community-based memory services to take part in this spotlight audit topic. The spotlight will focus on the time it takes for people with dementia to receive physical and mental assessment via community-based memory services.
Data collection will take place in Autumn 2020 and report in June 2021.
Registration will open in 2020.
