The OAA is pleased to support a new National Comparative Audit of the management of maternal anaemia. The audit is being run by NHS Blood and Transplant as part of its National Comparative Audit programme (NCA), and this is the first large-scale audit of maternal anaemia in the UK. Benchmarking hospital practice against guidelines, NCA will collect data on 10 live births that occur in early October to comment upon the opportunities that exist to improve the way we manage maternal anaemia, to improve the health of the mother and to avoid unnecessary transfusion. The audit starts in late November and hospitals are being invited to express an interest in the audit, which also presents trainees with an opportunity to conduct a local Quality Improvement project.
To express an interest in the audit, email the NCA Programme Manager, John Grant-Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org
, and he will provide further details. To find out more about the NCA, please use the following link http://hospital.blood.co.uk/audits/national-comparative-audit/
