The Perioperative Quality Improvement Programme :

This application is to gather and analyse patient data using the PQIP Database.

PQIP will measure complications after major planned surgery and seek to improve these outcomes through feedback of data to clinicians. A REC/CAG application for the PQIP Database has already received a favourable opinion. This analysis will answer important research questions about variation in quality of care in major surgery.

We expect that this substantial collaborative work will lead to valuable insights regarding the ways in which hospitals use data to drive improvements in care.
