NAP7: Perioperative Cardiac Arrest

NAP7 Logo

The Seventh National Audit Project (NAP7) of the Royal College of Anaesthetists will examine Perioperative Cardiac Arrest.

A panel comprised of senior clinicians from the RCoA, the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA), Health Services Research Centre (HSRC), and trainee and lay representatives selected the topic after a highly competitive application process.

The topic has now been ratified by the Clinical Quality & Research Board and College Council and is now formally the focus for NAP7.

The RCoA and HSRC would like to thank everyone who submitted a proposal for NAP7. The selection panel also wished to note the high level and quality of trainee involvement in the proposals for NAP7, including the submission for the successful topic.
