Welcome to NAP

The Health Services Research Centre and National Audit Projects

NAPs 1-4 were supported and managed by the Professional Standards Department of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. In 2011, the Health Services Research Centre (HSRC) of the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) was launched, with the aim of being a hub for world-class anaesthesia research (including perioperative, pain related and sub-specialty research). Now, the responsibility for management of the NAPs has been transferred to the HSRC, with oversight by Council of the College.

The NAPs now have a national (arguably international) profile, and it is important that the momentum gained by the recent NAP reports is maintained. It is equally important that future NAPs are relevant, well supported, well conducted and deliver a high quality product, addressing a clinically relevant issue.

NAP6 : Perioperative Anaphylaxis

NAP6 will examine perioperative anaphylaxis, a topic important to patients and anaesthetists alike.
