DATA AND AUDIT

Understanding and investigating the quality and care and how to improve it

The Scottish Trauma Audit Group (STAG) is a national audit within the Scottish National Audit Programme of Public Health Scotland.

STAG recommenced an audit of trauma in 2011 with the aim of improving the quality of care, overall experience and long term outcome of patients with significant injuries through measuring compliance against standards of care to support local quality improvement.

The responsibility for the oversight of the audit including maintenance of reporting standards, adherence to aims, objectives and reporting of results rests with the STAG Steering Group, with multi-disciplinary representation from most of the Health boards in Scotland and patient representation. The Steering Group meets regularly throughout the year to review the progress and direction of the audit in achieving its aims and objectives.

Have a look at the STAG website to find out more, including access to their reports: www.stag.scot.nhs.uk

e-stag is live

eSTAG went live on the 20th November 2017 and Local Audit Coordinators have started to record data. User names and passwords have been sent out to nominated clinicians and managers. Please contact the STAG team if you do not have access and we will firstly confirm this with the Lead Audit Consultant for STAG and then set this up if appropriate.

Reports using the Tableau™ Visualization Tool use data from eSTAG to ensure timely reporting of data. Reports are updated daily (with data entered on the previous day) and are available at National, Regional and Hospital levels with a bespoke report also available for the Scottish Ambulance Service.
