Musculoskeletal physiotherapy service standards: audit tool

This audit tool has been created to support MSK physiotherapy services to examine the quality of their service and identify areas for quality improvement

Each standard has a recommended quality measure, expressed in three parts,  aiming to support the improvement of the structure, process and outcomes of a MSK physiotherapy service.

Service improvement takes time and this tool enables members to audit their service against the Standards to help prioritise areas for improvement.  It also allows you to complete the audit at regular intervals to show your service improvement over time.

Not all the standards need to be implemented at the same time, so take time as a service in exploring what are the most important areas in your service to start with. 

The audit tool includes an overview page, results dashboard and tabs relating to each section. There are explanations on each of the tabs. It’s important to read the explanations first, before completing each section. 

If you haven’t read the full Standards document first, please go back and do this before using the audit tool.
