Adult Asthma National Clinical Audit Report 2019-2020
Published: 14 Jan 2021
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 is the second since the launch of the audit and presents data describing the cohort of patients discharged between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020.
An addendum to this report will be published in 2021, detailing 30- and 90-day mortality and hospital readmission rates. The two reports together are designed to provide a picture of the care provided to the cohort of adult patients admitted to hospital with an asthma attack who were included in the audit, as well as their outcomes post discharge.
