The Quality Metrics group will have oversight of both quantitate and qualitative data that aims to inform on AOS service activity and performance, including


• Development of national metrics including sentinel metrics and Quality surveillance

• Development and monitoring of national AO minimum data set

• AO Patient experience

• AO professional experience

The group will support AO metric development and evaluation across the 4 nations.

This recognises the long-term requirement to incorporate patient experience and new service measures into the development of future AO Services and the desire to ensure that service measures are developed with a 4-nation viewpoint.
