National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death[edit]

The NCEPOD website says: Under the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcome Programme (NCAPOP) participation in the Clinical Outcome Review Programme into Medical and Surgical Care, and Child Health Review is mandated. The GMC states that clinicians should take part: Good Medical Practice states "You must work with colleagues and patients to maintain and improve the quality of your work and promote patient safety". In particular Item (g) states "...contribute to confidential enquiries and adverse event recognition and reporting, to help reduce risk to patients". (Para 14 Good Medical Practice 2006). Additional guidance from the GMC on confidentiality also states that "There are circumstances in which you should disclose relevant information about a patient who has died" Item (c) states that this should be disclosed "for National Confidential Enquiries or for local clinical audit". The DH documents cover NHS Trusts and the GMC document covers clinicians working in both the NHS and the Independent sector.

NB you clearly know a lot more about oxygen therapy than I do - or the writer of the Guardian article. I read that article and it wasn't very clear to me where NIV fitted in. Rathfelder (talk) 11:26, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

@Rathfelder: Thanks for the clarification on the GMC duties. NCEPOD is not the only confidential enquiry but certainly the best known. Perhaps we could add this as a reference.
The Guardian article is very poorly written and I have flagged this with the journalist on Twitter but no response has been forthcoming. NIV is much more specialised treatment than oxygen therapy. It uses masks that are much more tightly fitting because air is pushed into the lungs with each breath. I have started the non-invasive ventilation article because it was not being done justice in the previous merged content in mechanical ventilation. JFW | T@lk 11:41, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
