Sarah Walpole's picture

What do we want you to do? 
We will provide you with a questionnaire for you to undertake with at least 20 patients in your hospital. The questionnaire is an 'inhaler audit proforma’ which explores patients preferences with regards to inhalers. 

Who are we looking for? 
We are looking for people working in secondary care (ie. hospitals). The minimum requirement is two people from any hospital – including one senior clinician (consultant, specialist nurse or SpR in respiratory). All healthcare professionals working in secondary care are invited to apply, including physician associates, pharmacists, respiratory nurses, physiotherapists and doctors. 

How much time will it take? 
The minimum time commitment is estimated to be 5 hours over three months. 

What will I get out of this? 
If you submit data from 20 questionnaires, you will be acknowledged in presentations of the findings.  
If you’re looking for an audit project for your portfolio, you can join this national audit which is well organised and manageable within a short timeframe. We will support you to present your data locally and  can support you in developing improvements and changes in your own setting.  
You can also contribute to reducing the carbon impact of the NHS.
