NAP6 Perioperative Anaphylaxis
Sixth National Audit Project of the Royal College of Anaesthetists
NAP6 will examine Perioperative Anaphylaxis.
Perioperative Anaphylaxis is rare, however it can be life-threatening and lead to serious complications whose epidemiology and clinical impact are incompletely defined. This project will collect comprehensive information concerning perioperative anaphylactic events, enabling the anaesthetic and allergy communities to collaborate in order to make recommendations for the improvement of the quality of patient care. Prof Tim Cook, College Advisor for NAPs, explained the selection process for this topic in the November 2013 edition of the Bulletin. This, and all other editions can be downloaded from the RCoA website at http://www.rcoa.ac.uk/news-and-bulletin.
Prof Nigel Harper has been appointed as the Clinical Lead for NAP6 and will be working closely alongside Dr Tim Cook, Director for National Audit Projects (NAPs).
Following the excellent engagement from NHS hospitals with NAP4 and NAP5, we are pleased to report that 100% of all UK NHS hospitals are now registered to take part in NAP6.
Local Co-ordinators will lead the Baseline Survey in November 2015 and the year-long data collection which will begin in November 2015. An Allergen survey will be carried out in October 2016.
IMPORTANT - Current LC resources including the Local Co-ordinators Information Pack, and Powepoint Presentation have been UPDATED to reflect queries received to date. All LCs have been emailed on 20th October with this update. Please find all up to date resources click here.
