This chapter discusses a dissemination and sustainability strategy for the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient (LCP) programme in incorporating a model for national audit for care of the dying. It first takes the national clinical audit in context before considering the impact of national clinical audit. It shows that the measurement of quality to drive sustained improvement is important for a high-performing healthcare system, and that data can be a powerful tool for improving quality of care.
