BAUS Snapshot Audits

BAUS will be launching two new snapshot audits in 2020. The first of these will be an audit of surgery for bladder outflow obstruction (BOO): this audit opened on 1 March 2020 and is now closed.  Indiviudal unit feedback will be sent out in early October 2020.  National data from the audit will be presented at the BAUS Annual Meeting in November 2020.

This will be followed by an audit of the assessment and management of all emergency admissions with suspected or confirmed renal/ureteric colic during November 2020. The data on patients presenting in November 2020 will be collected in March 2021 to allow for follow up.

In addition, there is already an ongoing audit of the management of patients undergoing cytoreductive radical nephrectomy during 2019; follow-up data will be collected for these patients in 2020 and 2021.  An audit on the management of the lower ureter for nephroureterectomy was launched in the summer of 2020.

A message from Mr Andrew Dickinson, BAUS Audit Steering Group Chair:

“ ... I hope you will find this project exciting and worthwhile.

"The audits will provide BAUS with snapshots of UK practice. The BOO Audit, for example, will allow BAUS data to be compared with NICE and EAU guidelines for this common urological condition.

"These data will also provide useful feedback for local units, as well as guiding evidence-based improvement in patient care ... "
