The short audit tool was based on the NIPEC Online Audit Tool - NOAT, which was developed from a range of record keeping quality assessment tools. All care settings are considered, drawing upon the principles contained within the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Code of Professional Standards of Practice and behaviour for nurses and midwives (2015)[1] and Standards for Person Centred Nursing and Midwifery Record keeping Practice (2013)[2].
