Standards of Care for People with Musculoskeletal Foot Health problems: AUDIT TOOLS

Standards audit tools

A project carried out on behalf of the Podiatry Rheumatic Care Association (PRCA) and Funded by the Arthritis Research Campaign (arc)

AUDIT TOOLS
The audit tools provided here are designed to help you to gather information to evaluate the extent to which the Standards of care for people with musculoskeletal foot health problems are being met. We invite you to use these tools, plus the education and information resources provided elsewhere on this site, to work in partnership with commissioners, service planners, managers, clinicians and service users to design and develop services that meet the needs of those with musculoskeletal foot health problems.

There are audit tools available for managers of musculoskeletal foot health services, clinicians who provide musculoskeletal foot health services and service users who access musculoskeletal foot health services.

We provide audit tools for the generic assessment of foot health services for all service users, and also tools for a more detailed assessment of foot health services in the context of services users who present with specific diseases, such as; inflammatory disease, osteoarthritis, metabolic bone disease, connective tissue disease and back pain.

You might want to use all 3 audit tools in order to gain a 360 degree view of services, although each audit questionnaire can be also used alone. You might want to involve a number of foot health managers and clinicians, and include a range of patient groups.

Questions to assess disease specific services can be found at the end of the managers and clinicians audit tools. We have provided separate audit forms for services users who present with specific musculoskeletal conditions in association with foot health problems.
