Telling stories with data

Welcome to my blog. Auditnerd is where my thoughts, ideas and experiences are going to be logged.

When meeting new people, one of the first questions asked is:

‘What do you do for a living?’

Actually, I manage a clinical audit portfolio for a living…but if this is my immediate response, I get my fair share of blank looks. This is not surprising, because there are relatively few people who do what I do. Officially, my role is that a specialist nursing educator; but I don’t just teach. My role involves development and training of staff, coordinating of audit projects, data management, report writing…it’s pretty complex. So naturally, the next question asked is:

‘What kind of work does that involve?’

The simplest answer is that I tell stories with data; clinically meaningful stories of compliance, improvement, and outcomes of care against the standards.

So, welcome to my world. It seems a little dreary and dull to most. Hopefully I can make aspects of it more interesting.
