PQIP Newsletter - 18 November 2016



NIHR portfolio adoption confirmed
The PQIP patient study, which will recruit 70,000 patients over four years has been adopted onto the NIHR portfolio. This means that you should be able to access support from your local NIHR Local Clinical Research Network to recruit patients to PQIP and support data management locally. Please contact if you need further information. 


First five hospitals have confirmed R&D approvals and are poised to start

The first five hospitals to get their R&D paperwork sorted and agree readiness to take part are Wirral, Plymouth, Dudley, King's Lynn and Russells Hall – thank you and well done! We're looking forward to talking to local teams and R&D departments in our site set-up phone calls over the next few weeks. Meanwhile, the total number of hospitals planning to take part in PQIP remains around 70 – great result and thanks for your support. We are still interested in recruiting new sites, so spread the word!


New PRISM Quality Improvement and Improvement Science e-learning module launched on e-Learning for Health

We're delighted that the PRISM (Perioperative Research, Improvement Science and Management) learning module for QI training has been launched on the e-Learning for Healthcare portal. The free, easy to use online platform will provide you with all you need to know to get started on your QI plans using PQIP and other data.  Please click the links below to get started. 




Full PQIP live website to be launched next week
The full website is nearly ready to go! We have been working hard on making this an interesting resource for investigators and all clinicians engaged in PQIP. Within the data entry web-tool which will be accessible to participating hospitals, we are including links to key research papers, blogs and podcasts from experts about some of the big issues and conundrums around perioperative care. PQIP is about much more than just data entry – it is about learning and improvement so we hope that the website and web-tool will support local teams in these efforts. 


Royal College and Faculty thanks given to PQIP local teams
The Presidents of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, Surgeons (Eng) and Nursing, and the Deans of the Faculties of Pain and Intensive Care Medicine have all given their full endorsement to PQIP and co-signed a letter which will be sent to CEOs of hospitals taking part. In the letter they thank the named individual leads for surgery, anaesthesia, improvement and of course the local Principal Investigator. Like them, we are grateful for your support and engagement with PQIP and look forward to working with you over the coming months and years. 


That's it for now folks. Please follow us on Twitter @pqipnews and get in touch with any queries. Have a great week!
The PQIP Team
