National Audit of Small Bowel Obstruction (NASBO) 2017

Posted 28 July 2016 in

This audit is a joint initiative between the trainee research collaboratives of South Yorkshire and West Midlands, and ACPGBI, with funding from the BDRF.

This prospective audit will map the care process of patients being treated for acute small bowel obstruction over an 8 week period in early 2017. It will capture particular data about adherence to nutritional guidelines in the management of these patients.

We are looking for centres to support this project. We would like a consultant surgeon from each acute trust in the UK to lead this project locally. We will provide all relevant governance documentation and training. All those who return a validated dataset at the end of the study will be eligible for collaborative authorship.

To date, 66 hospitals have signed up. A map with participating units can be seen here: https://goo.gl/3d1Rlw .

If your unit isn’t on this map, please email contact@nasbo.org.uk to get involved.
