A series of half-day meetings to support clinical teams as they join the IBD Registry. The sessions provide protected time for teams to learn about the Biologics Audit and QI programme using the IBD Registry, and to develop local plans for Registry adoption. Each meeting will be tailored to local needs and aim to provide information, support and hands-on guidance. Experts from the Registry will be on hand to answer questions, and interactive workshops will provide practical support for teams to work together to develop your own plans. Free to attend due to generous industry sponsorship. Register at http://ibdrroadshow2017.eventreference.com/
Trusts in England – 40% discount on audit subscriptions by 15th March
We've had an encouraging response to the request for subscriptions from Trusts in England to help the BSG maintain the Biologics Audit now that NHS England funding has been withdrawn.
At £2,500 per annum, the subscription is significantly less than the cost of one patient on biologics treatment for a year. Subscribers will receive benchmarked quarterly reports on the Biologics Audit KPIs focusing on quality improvement topics recommended in the last RCP Biologics Report. Later in the year, it is our intention to include reporting of HES data in relation to the Biologics data.
The BSG has offered to reduce the cost in the first year by 40% if a Trust provides a purchase order by 15th March 2017. We have written to the Chief Executives of all Trusts in England explaining the new arrangements for the Biologics Audit, putting the subscription cost in the context of overall expenditure on biologics for IBD, and reminding them that participation in the Audit is part of the NHS England Quality Accounts requirement.
DID YOU KNOW?
- Teams can participate in the IBD Registry using their own choice of data entry systems to suit local needs (including some existing local systems)
- Being part of the IBD Registry will give teams:
- Robust local data to manage their biologics patients and IBD service more effectively, efficiently and safely
- Evidence to benchmark the quality of their service as part of a national audit of the safety and appropriate use of biologics
With our thanks for your continued contribution to the IBD Registry,
Dr Stuart Bloom, IBD Registry Chair & Dr Fraser Cummings, IBD Registry Clinical Lead
