IBD inpatient care audit

The IBD inpatient care audit gives a comprehensive picture of current provision of care for inpatients and will enable lay people, as well as experts, to extract relevant information. This report should form the template for a local action plan that allows the IBD team to identify areas in need of change. The plan should include mechanisms for service improvement and the individuals responsible for these actions should be made clear.
