Adult Asthma Audit Report 2019

Reports | Published: 13 Dec 2019

The adult asthma clinical audit, a component of the National Asthma and COPD Audit Programme (NACAP), launched in November 2018 and captures the processes and clinical outcomes of treatment for patients admitted to hospital in England, Scotland and Wales with asthma attacks.

This report, which is the first since the launch of the audit, presents data describing the cohort of patients that arrived at hospital on or after 1 November 2018, who were admitted to adult services and were discharged by 31 March 2019.

The clinical audit report highlights three key areas for quality improvement (QI) in 2019/20. A selection of case studies, provided by participating hospital teams, are included in the report to showcase good practice. In addition, tips to achieving the QI priorities are included in the relevant sections of the report.
