Case 3: Dr Porter and Charge Nurse Cameron (Aspirin)

A picture of Dr Porter and Staff Nurse Cameron in a hospital corridor
Dr Porter and Charge Nurse Cameron work in the stroke unit of the hospital and receive monthly reports from the Scottish Stroke Care Audit to update them on their unit’s performance against nationally agreed standards for stroke care. (See the Clinical standards, Clinical audit and Evidence based guidelines topic loops on the right for further information.)

When Dr Porter and Charge Nurse Cameron received their monthly report in April they were disappointed as they felt that the data presented in the report did not reflect their performance in relation to the prescription of antiplatelets to the patients in the ward.
