Do 'processes' have to be excluded from the audit?

In some audits, it will be necessary or preferable to include some process elements so these do not have to be excluded; however, the entire audit cannot be based around processes for the purpose of fulfilling your professional competence requirements. For example in an audit of diabetes, review HbA1c levels rather than simply whether a blood test for HbA1c has been taken.
