Asthma Audit Development Project: Final Report 2018
Published: 16 Aug 2018
Following a key recommendation from the NRAD report ‘Why Asthma Still Kills’ that ‘a national ongoing audit of asthma should be established, which would help clinicians, commissioners and patient organisations to improve asthma care’ asthma was proposed as a new topic to join the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NACPOP) in the NHS England call for audit topics in 2014.
The topic was evaluated and prioritised at the inaugural NHS England Domain Directors’ Prioritisation Meeting for NCAPOP in March 2015, with feedback that it should cover adults and children, be established in secondary care, with the possibility of including ambulance data, and should be extended to primary care as soon as data extraction mechanisms were established.
