What is the Early Intervention in Psychosis audit?


The Early Intervention in Psychosis audit was a quality improvement programme commissioned by Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) on behalf of NHS England, and awarded to the Royal College of Psychiatrists' Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI).


Early intervention in psychosis services are specialist community services providing care and treatment to people who are experiencing their first episode of psychosis, and for those who are at high risk of developing psychosis.  The EIP audit helped to establish the extent to which these services comply with a framework of NICE standards of care, NICE quality standard for psychosis and schizophrenia in adults (QS80), which put particular emphasis on early access, physical health, family intervention and supported employment programmes. 


The results of the audit provided a national overview of the EIP services’ quality of care in England relative to those standards. In addition, the audit enabled participating services to identify their strengths as well as the areas of improvement.
