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 opens on 1 March 2020 and closes on 31 March 2020.
This will be followed, in November 2020, by an audit of the assessment and management of all emergency admissions with suspected or confirmed renal/ureteric colic during May 2020. The audit questions are currently being finalised by the Section of Endourology, and will be piloted in April 2020.
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.

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 ... "
