The National Complicated intra-ABdominal Infection (CABI) Audit

In Projects by Shafaque

The YSRC and NITCAR (National Infection Trainee Collaborative for Audit and Research) are delighted to launch a national prospective audit evaluating the current management strategies and related outcome of patients with Complicated intra-ABdominal Infection (CABI). The audit is aimed at gathering baseline data to inform a randomised clinical trial evaluating the role of long-term antibiotics (up to 4 weeks) in the management of CABI not amenable to source control.

Please review the attached documents and we would be grateful if these could be circulated widely amongst your trainees. The audit is also on the HQIP quality accounts, which is an incentive for trusts to participate.
