New report highlights variations in approaches to thoracic surgery in the United Kingdom and Ireland
Date:3/21/2008

e and will serve to improve the outcomes for patients, as well as assist in the planning and implementation of future thoracic surgical services. By reporting procedure type/s and the locations where in the surgery is carried out, it is hoped this first national audit will lead to better organisation of services, Mr Page commented. For example, there are more thoracic procedures performed in some parts of the country than others, for whatever reason, and that is a very powerful argument for extra resources. I hope the report highlights that need.

The first report contains no patient-specific details and is therefore not designed to compare and measure surgical outcomes between hospitals, but rather variations in surgical activity. However, the Society has agreed a minimum dataset to allow for a report on such issues within the United Kingdom and Ireland for thoracic surgical practice.

The dataset we have agreed has been established for some four or five years and is easy to understand and uncomplicated. If you make it too complicated one runs the risk of not getting the reports in at all and if you make it too simple the data is not very useful, so it is about striking a balance. It concentrates on the surgical management of lung cancer. Of course there is a temptation to expand the dataset and to look in detail at more diseases, but at first it is best to establish the process so people understand what we want and further down the road there may well be a case for expanding the dataset. In this first report we have shown what can be done and over time we hope to develop a more comprehensive report, Mr Page concluded.

Dr Peter Walton, Managing Director of Dendrite Clinical Systems, commented, We are delighted to publish The First National Thoracic Surgery Report, which we believe will be of tremendous educational value to both the Society, its members and other healthcare professionals involved in thoracic surgical services. I would like to
