Peer review is especially effective in inducing change and improvement in practice in the long term, and is particularly appropriate in the UK and Europe - it is relevant, locally based, simple and educational. The original Dutch book from which this book was developed was well reviewed. The ideas presented in this book are mainstream and challenging and will help to extend the audit debate as well as to further progress in continuing medical education.
`Having read the book, I now realise how skilled the authors have been in condensing the information into 17 readable, well-presented, short chapters. This book is a good read. It gives a different perspective on the standard audit methods and provides clear, interesting examples.'
Hilary Hearnshaw, Audit Trends, Volume 3, December 1995
`I thoroughly enjoyed and can recommend this well written and very detailed book, which is the thirty-second in the excellent Oxford General Practice Series. It has been meticulously researched, with over 120 references, mostly British. Helpfully it keeps jargon to a minimum, and wisely treats medical and clinical audit as synonymous. The writing is concise and logically laid out in 17 chapters ... this is a very good book, which I am very happy to
recommend and one that I believe should be on the shelves of all practice and NHS libraries.'
Tom Davies, Primary Care Management, Volume 6, Number 10, 1996
`easy and pleasurable to read ... The book is brief and to the point.'
Dr Wayne Lewis, Doctor, June 1996
