During the last decade medical audit has become an important tool to evaluate and modify clinical practice in both general and mental health care settings. This article reviews the role of audit in Consultation Liaison (C-L) psychiatry. Audit has played a crucial role in helping to better understand the content and the mechanisms of our own work. Scientific arguments are made to emphasize that audit, most often a form of quasi-experimental research, is a most appropriate tool for C-L psychiatric research. The current emphasis on the importance of audit is an advantage for the further development of C-L psychiatry.
