On today’s episode, we discuss how audits influence intentions to improve safety practices.
To help frame our conversation, we use the paper How Does Audit and Feedback Influence Intentions of Health Professionals to Improve Practice?
- Our feelings about audits.
- Feedback from the audit process.
- The format of a cluster-randomized trial.
- Lab vs. field results.
- How to act on audit results.
- Analyzing the study’s results.
- Final takeaways.
“…The two parts of this study that we’re going to talk about now, are really trying to address that first part of it, which is the information to intention gap…”
“In the field, there’s obviously other information, which is going to affect the decision, other than this particular report.”
“If there’s no data, professionals really want to see the data, before committing to whether or not they need to improve.”
