NELA app and Laparotomy Team

The NELA app was devised as a way to streamline data entry for NELA in two hospitals in the region while maintaining confidentiality, and allowing the hospitals involved to identify areas for improvement in laparotomy care.

The laparotomy team project looked at the importance of mulitdisciplinary team work as part of care of patients undergoing emergency laparotomies. This included all members of staff, from ED and radiology to surgeons, anaesthetists and operating department staff.
