National Office of Clinical Audit Strategy 2021 –2025

The NOCA Strategy 2021–2025 sets out how we will advance national clinical audit in a constantly changing healthcare system – a system which is facing many challenges, but also provides many opportunities.This strategy has been developed in the spirit of collaboration and is a result of extensive engagement with various stakeholders across the Irish healthcare system including our audit teams and committees.

NOCA Strategy 2021-2025

Since its establishment, NOCA has worked to involve Patient and Public Interest (PPI) representatives on the NOCA Governance Board and all audit committees. At present, two PPI representatives sit on the NOCA Governance Board and on eachaudit committee. PPI representatives include patients, family members, carers and members of the public who help develop clinical audit in a meaningful and informed manner. NOCA runs workshops and webinars for all PPI representatives in which we listen and learn how to ensure that PPI representatives’ voices are heard
