The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) has updated its quality accounts tool. This now relates to NHS Outcomes Framework domains.
“Approved by NHS England, each of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP) audits have now been mapped to one of the five domains…”
These domains are:
Domain 1: Preventing people from dying prematurely.
Domain 2: Enhancing quality of life for people with long-term conditions.
Domain 3: Helping people to recover from episodes of ill-health or following injury.
Domain 4: Ensuring that people have a positive experience of care.
Domain 5: Treating and caring for people in a safe environment and protecting them from avoidable harm.
