NACAP QI Project 2 – Asthma Diagnosis

Presented by Dr Katherine Hickman, GP and Primary Care Clinical Lead for the National Asthma and COPD Audit Programme (NACAP)

 

The aim of this Quality Improvement Project is to record evidence and code appropriately objective variability for 80% or more of people diagnosed with asthma, as demonstrated by at least one of the following:

  • two-week peak flow diary
  • reversible spirometry
  • Peak flow steroid trial
  • fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO)

The ICST platform hosts this NACAP Quality Improvement Project. It is a dynamic and integrated platform, freely accessible to healthcare teams – including National Clinical Guidelines and Pathways, Standards, Education, Certifications, Registers and an Integrated Quality Improvement platform.

 

NHS Wales healthcare teams can access the platform featuring programmes consisting of national guidelines, education, quality improvement, certification, and patient self management tools. A joined up system from policy to patient.

If you are in NHS Wales, join by logging in or signing up.


This QI project forms part of a national programme of work commissioned by Welsh Government through the Respiratory Health Implementation Group. This is centrally funded offering NHS Wales healthcare teams unlimited, free access and support focusing on the things that matter for their patients.
