  • To overcome some of the barriers to the introduction of audit within the veterinary profession.
  • To give some structure to the initial integration of audit into the profession.
  • To un-tap the potential for audit within the profession


  • To produce a guide to clinical audit
  • To undertake relevant areas of research to improve understanding in this area
  • To initiate routes
      • for sharing of information on audit
      • to allow collaboration of data
      • to share best practice
      • to provide a forum of discussion around clinical audit
      • to facilitate, where appropriate, all of the above.
      • To prevent duplication of effort within the profession i.e. co-ordinate with other bodies with a common goal.
