Australia is lagging a decade behind in emergency abdominal surgery

Medical professionals have called for sustained and increased funding for clinical quality registries after the release of a report which highlights that overall Australia is lagging well behind the UK in the treatment of patients receiving emergency abdominal surgery.

The report is a collaboration between the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) as well as associated societies and is based on data from a pilot project known as the Australian and New Zealand Emergency Laparotomy Audit– Quality Improvement (ANZELA-QI) program.

It measures the standard of care for emergency abdominal surgeries (laparotomies). In total, data was collected on 3,178 patients between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2021.
