The aim of this QI project

The aim of this Quality Improvement Project is to record evidence and code appropriately objective variability for 80% or more of people diagnosed with asthma, as demonstrated by at least one of the following:
  • two-week peak flow diary
  • reversible spirometry
  • peak flow steroid trial
  • fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO)
This is the second of two projects, which involves inviting patients in for a review of the Asthma diagnosis if they don't have any record of any diagnostic tests. This project should be completed after the first project, which focuses on reviewing the Asthma register.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class="qitaskouterrow"][vc_column][vc_row_inner el_class="qigrey"][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

A recap on the evidence

Data collected from GP practices across Wales suggest that only 76.3% adult patients and 67.4% children and young adult patients on the Asthma registers have evidence of any tests results that can be used to support their diagnosis. This QI project will ensure that the Asthma register is coded correctly, and every patient who has no evidence of a diagnostic test is invited in for a diagnostic review.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class="qitaskouterrow"][vc_column][vc_row_inner el_class="qigrey"][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

What will I get for completing this project?

Good data entry directly improves patient care, which will also help you identify gaps or errors in the patient record or diagnosis. On completion of this QI project, you will also get a certificate for your work. You will also be able to use this QI project as evidence towards CPD and professional revalidation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
