ANZELA-QI

The Australian and New Zealand Emergency Laparotomy Audit - Quality Improvement (ANZELA-QI), co-led by ANZCA and RACS, is a bi-national, multi-centre project that aims to improve perioperative care of patients undergoing emergency laparotomy. There is a compelling case for a high quality, prospective audit to help drive quality improvement for this at-risk patient cohort. Similar initiatives internationally have demonstrated significantly enhanced processes of care and reduction in mortality. Already, the project has enrolled 50 hospitals across both countries, and is hoping for more centres to join.

For further information and participation, visit the ANZELA-QI website.
