Please note: This is an NOA members only event. The recording of the forum can be found in the members area of the website here. 

The Orthopaedic Quality Improvement (including Clinical Audit) Network (OQICAN) Learning Forum on Tuesday 30 November, featured presentations from:

  • Effectiveness of a COVID-19 patient care pathway at an elective orthopaedic site (Wrightington Hospital)Mr Viraj Gandbhir, International Training Fellow, Wrightington Wigan and Leigh Teaching Hospitals NHS FT

The Learning Forums are part of the wider OQICAN programme (you can read more on the OQICAN webpage in the Members Area of the NOA Website- if you’re not yet registered, you can do so here) and are designed to share quality improvement and clinical audit work through presentations and discussions with peers in other orthopaedic departments and organisations.

This might be:

–  A current or recent project (within the last 12 months)

–  Results and findings of a project and the opportunity to discuss with peers, what next?

–  A completed project that may have significance to a wider, multi-organisational audience

–  Outline for a planned project where input from peers would be valuable

Next Forum: Tuesday 26 April 2022.

If you would like to put yourself or your audit team forward to present during a future forum, please complete the form on the the OQICAN webpage.
