SwiFT: Swine Flu Triage audit

2010-11 saw the re-emergence of H1N1 (swine ‘flu) in critical care and the need to capture, evaluate and feedback on suspected and confirmed cases. Following the success of the previous SwiFT study, the SwiFT web portal was re-opened in 2010 for audit purposes.

As with the previous SwiFT study, the SwiFT audit was used to monitor the impact of the H1N1 pandemic on critical care services. Regular feedback was provided to critical care clinicians to inform ongoing policy and practice.
