NACAP’s adult asthma secondary care workstream includes a continuous clinical audit of people admitted to hospital with asthma attacks, and a snapshot audit of the organisation and resourcing of care.
Adult asthma - continuous clinical audit
The adult asthma continuous clinical audit collects information on adults admitted to hospital in England and Wales with asthma attacks.
COPD and adult asthma - organisational audit
Snapshot organisational audits collect information on how services are organised and what resources are available to them at a given point in time. To reduce the burden on services to enter data, we ask that COPD and adult asthma services join together to provide information on their respiratory service as a whole. The most recent organisational audit took place from 6 September – 1 October 2021 and will report findings at Trust/Health board level.
How to participate
All hospitals in England and Wales that provide adult asthma care can participate in the audit by entering admission data from patient care case notes into a secure and bespoke audit web tool. Clinical and non-clinical staff can take part in data submission. Participation is a requisite of trust quality accounts in England.
