DATA ANALYSIS & SURGICAL OUTCOMES UNIT
Royal North Shore Hospital
The DASO Unit is an exciting new initiative at RNSH, the first set up to provide professional data support in order to deliver high quality surgical audit and stimulate surgical outcomes research.
The DASO Unit will be overseen by a non-clinical manager but driven by surgeons. Specifically it will support and where necessary oversee and coordinate all audit and data management activities within surgical departments. This will include providing resources as well as expert guidance to data managers and surgeons on conducting prospective and total practice audits (local and national), data collection and analysis for research purposes.
The DASO Unit will have a key role in developing and implementing systems to ensure uniform data integrity, data analysis and the provision of reports to meet individual surgeon, departmental, divisional and hospital clinical reporting needs.
