Australian and New Zealand Tripartite Anaesthetic Data Committee
The Role of the Australian and New Zealand Tripartite Anaesthetic Data Committee
The mission of ANZTADC is to improve the safety and quality of anaesthesia for patients in Australia and New Zealand by providing an enduring capability to capture, analyse and disseminate information about incidents (de-identified) relative to the safety and quality of anaesthesia in Australia and New Zealand.
ANZTADC completed the development of a web-based program for recording anaesthetic incident data. The program is known as webAIRS, which stands for web-based anaesthetic incident recording system and is a tool that can be used in anaesthetic departments throughout Australia and New Zealand.
The pilot site phase has been completed, all hospitals are now able to register. The ANZTAD Committee is now in the process of analysing the incidents and will release the results in the near future. To join the project and send de-identified incident data from your hospital to this bi-national Registry please follow this link.
This web-based tool is free and can also be used to provide a means of recording incidents in your department instead of paper forms. If your hospital has an e-Health compliant Anaesthetic Recording System then data can be shared electronically with ANZTADC. You are able to receive CPD points for reporting incident data to ANZTADC. This tool allows you to print out a certificate to confirm the credits or optionally the confirmation can be sent by email.
