  1. NAP7: Perioperative Cardiac Arrest – NIAA

    Leave a Comment The Seventh National Audit Project (NAP7) of the Royal College of Anaesthetists will examine Perioperative Cardiac Arrest. https://www.nationalauditprojects.org.uk/NAP7-Home#pt 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. The NAP7 Project Team are currently in the planning stage of NAP7, and look to begin data collection in Spring 2020.
