This guide provides an overview of the social care audit quality improvement cycle, and sets out the role of operational and strategic leaders in implementing care audit within their organisation. The care audit quality cycle provides a system for checking how well the services meet evidence-based standards, highlights how services might be improved, and ensures, through robust action-planning and further audit, the implementation of the changes needed to improve care and outcomes for people who use your services. The guide describes the benefits of care audit for people who use services, care organisations, and professionals, as part of a whole-systems approach to quality and service improvement, and the fundamental importance of involving those who use services throughout. It is one of a suite of guidance developed to support social care professionals to undertake care audit. (Edited publisher abstract)
