The first meeting takes place over 6-7 June. Advancing the Science and Impact of Audit and Feedback will focus on how to maximise and realise the potential of national audit programmes.
Day 1 of the meeting will mainly bring together researchers to:
- Review progress in the field; and
- Plan further activities and collaboration
Day 2 will include invited national audit providers and bodies with roles in assuring the quality of healthcare, and will cover:
- Sharing evidence and best practice in audit and feedback;
- Challenges and opportunities for national audit programmes;
- Developing partnerships to embed research within national audit programmes.
The second meeting takes place later on 7 June. We will be sharing the results in public, for the first time, of Action to Support Practices Implementing Research Evidence (ASPIRE). This is a major quality improvement experiment involving over 200 general practices across West Yorkshire, funded by NIHR.
INTERNATIONAL MEETING ON ADVANCING THE SCIENCE AND IMPACT OF AUDIT AND FEEDBACK
6-7 June 2017
Leeds Institute of Health Sciences wishes to invite you to the international meeting on advancing the science and impact of audit and feedback taking place in Leeds.
What is Audit and Feedback?
Audit and Feedback is commonly used to improve the delivery and outcomes of healthcare. A&F generally has small to moderate and variable effects on patient care. There is a limited understanding of the reasons for this variation in effects. There are major opportunities to reduce research waste in this field, and advance the science
and impact of A&F.
Who are we?
We are an international community of health researchers and health system partners that undertake shared activities to enhance the provision of audit and feedback to improve health care performance, patient outcomes and health system sustainability. We are building upon the first meeting of the A&F Collaborative, founded in Ottawa in 2016.
If you are interested in attending one or both days, or booking accommodation, please contact
Wendy Hobson: W.Hobson@leeds.ac.uk.
Day one (University of Leeds)
of the meeting will mainly bring together researchers to
– Review progress in the field; and
– Plan further activities and collaboration
Day two (Double Tree Hilton Hotel, Leeds)
will include invited national audit providers and bodies with roles in assuring the quality of healthcare, and will cover:
– Sharing evidence and best practice in A&F;
– Challenges and opportunities for national audit programmes;
– Developing partnerships to embed research within national audit programmes.
Invitation to the first public sharing of research findings on Wednesday 7th June

Action to Support Practices Implementing Research Evidence (ASPIRE).
ASPIRE is a major quality improvement experiment involving over 200 general practices across West Yorkshire.
We randomised general practices to a support package targeting one of:
Achievement of treatment goals in diabetes;
Anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation;
Blood pressure control in patients at high risk of cardiovascular disease;
Risky prescribing, particularly of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Our study findings will answer:
Did ASPIRE make any difference to patient care and outcomes?
Was ASPIRE worth the time and money?
What did practice staff think about ASPIRE?
ASPIRE is important to clinical commissioners, managers and clinicians as it concerns:
Safer and cost-effective prescribing in general practice;
Use of ‘big data’ to influence clinical practice and assess the impact of quality improvement;
Scaled up ‘real world’ research that directly addresses priorities for population health;
Involving patient and public partners in quality improvement.

We wish to thank all practices, commissioners and others who participated or helped deliver this cutting-edge primary care research in Yorkshire.
