A multi-regional trainee-led audit in acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding (AUGIB)
Sponsored by GutsUK, this will be the largest trainee-led audit in upper GI bleeding to date, aiming to improve quality of care and patient outcomes. We will be joining forces with East Midlands trainees (GARNet) and North West (GasTRIN NoW) to make this a prospective multi-centre quality improvement project.
WMRIG and GARNet (East Midlands) have been jointly awarded £5000 of funding from CORE to support this project.
There is WM trainee representation in the steering committee of the BSG Endoscopy Quality Improvement Project (EQUIP) to develop an acute intervention bundle for AUGIB which can be implemented nationally (and beyond) to improve quality of care and patient outcomes. Regional pre- and post-bundle audits will inform the effect of the future intervention (GIB6 bundle) on standards of care.
