The National Infection Trainee Collaborative for Audit and Research (NITCAR)
The National Infection Trainee Collaborative for Audit and Research (NITCAR) is a national network of Infection trainees working together on national infection projects.
NITCAR's first national project is HOODINI (Hospital Onset Diarrhoea Investigation), a multi-centre service evaluation investigating hospital-onset diarrhoea. Data is currently being collected for this project.
Further information about NITCAR, including project, annual meeting and contact details, is available on the NITCAR website.
NITCAR Update - Spring 2017
Our major project this summer is focusing on the investigation and management of native vertebral osteomyelitis (NVO), in particular looking at characterising the national patient group to target future services effectively. We are looking for as many sites as possible to get involved. See NITCAR website
Future projects on maternal sepsis, UTI and meningitis coming soon!
