|Effective Date:||1 June 2002|
|Reason for Change:||Amendment to classification|
The Intensive and High Dependency Care Data Collection - Users Manual: For the Augmented Care Period (ACP) Dataset, was out of print and has recently been retyped and published on the web at: nww.nhsia.nhs.uk/datastandards/pages/augmented_care_period.asp and www.nhsia.nhs.uk/datastandards/pages/augmented_care_period.asp.
The whole area of critical care data collection is currently being reviewed by the Critical Care Information Advisory Group (CCIAG). Therefore it was decided to publish the Users Manual in its original format, with only the correction of typographical errors.
One of the corrections, changes the text of the Augmented Care Period Disposal code 02. This is in accordance with an agreement between the Department of Health and the Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre (ICNARC), to make the Augmented Care Period Source and Augmented Care Period Disposal compatible with ICNARC. This occurred in the original DSCN and Users Manual for Augmented Care Period Source, but not for Augmented Care Period Disposal.
Data Standards to support the Augmented Care Period dataset were introduced in DSCN 29/96/P24.Summary of changes:
