The experience of any patient suffering a heart attack can be described as a ‘pathway’, along which there are numerous opportunities to receive individual items of care. The provision of all these items, as a ‘bundle of care’, can be looked on as optimal treatment as described in Clinical Guidelines – recommendations that interpret or translate the results of research within carefully selected groups of patients into general clinical practice for all patients.

The number of UK adult heart patients dying in hospital has fallen by more than 20% in the last ten years, according to the latest National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit (NACSA) data published today. More...
The third iteration of the Joint British Societies' Consensus Recommendations for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease (JBS3) offers physicians and healthcare providers tools for the risk estimation and management of patients with cardiovascular disease based on risk over lifetime as well as short-term risk.

A letter from the National Heart Failure Audit, written in response to an article published in The Times, has been published today. The original article referenced data from a US registry of 'people who had had heart attacks or heart disease, or were at risk of it' which showed little benefit in terms of reduced illness or mortality for those taking beta blockers.
NICOR (The National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research) collects patient information from hospitals across the UK to try and improve the quality of care and outcomes for patients that have heart problems and treatments. These include adult heart surgery, heart attack, heart procedures, heart devices (for example pacemakers), heart failure and congenital heart surgery. More...
Data access and research
Audit data for research and analysis
NICOR has a strong and growing research agenda, and welcomes applications from academic groups to use audit data in research projects. We are especially interested in research which aims to identify best practice in clinical management and service coordination and design.
NICOR’s research activities are managed through a research committee, which reports to the NICOR executive. The research executive has responsibility for overseeing the development of research opportunities for the audit data, and for the development of the emerging research strategy.
To maximise the research capability, each audit has its own research group which serves a number of purposes, including determining research questions answerable by single or combined datasets and facilitating the research use of the datasets. Audit research groups will be responsible for assessing applications for use of data which involve only one dataset, while the NICOR research executive will consider applications to use data from multiple audits.
We have provided additional information we think will be useful in making an application to use this data.
