SURGICAL DATA SUPPORT

The following information is intended for surgical departments requiring support and funding to undertake data management and audit activities at Royal North Shore Hospital.

Data Management & Audit Funding

The NSLHD has committed to significant ongoing funding to support surgical data management and audit within RNSH. The DASO Unit has access to a limited amount of funding to distribute to departments across the Division of Surgery & Anaesthesia.

The criteria for distributing money will favour departments that have unmet needs within existing well-structured data systems as well as those departments with demonstrated data management interests particularly from senior clinicians.

Funding will be provided on a temporary basis with regular reviews to ensure resources are being used appropriately.
