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.
The next NITCAR annual meeting will take place on 16th March 2017, in Leeds.

NITCAR Update - September 2016
NITCAR are currently analysing results for our first collaborative project, HOODINI (see newsletter for details). We are also collecting data for our next two projects HCV (looking at follow up rates and hepatitis C testing) and CABI (looking at how complex intra-abdominal infections are managed).
NITCAR Update - July 2016
NITCAR continues to grow and we have just completed data collection for our first collaborative project, HOODINI. We are also now recruiting for 2 new projects:

Full details of how to get involved in either of these projects, or in NITCAR in general can be found on our latest newsletter (July 2016, see below) and on our website.
