First paper from JIPAD (J Crit Care)


● The ANZICS-CORE (Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society, Centre for Outcome and Resource Evaluation) comprises four data registries: the APD, the ANZICS Pediatric Intensive Care Registry (ANZPICR), the Critical Care Resources (CCR) Registry, and the Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI) Registry

The JIPAD, which generally uses the same diagnostic codes as the APD (Appendix 4 & 5), has partnered with the ANZICS-CORE. Although these two databases are not identical because of international differences in medical care, our database can be considered a valid global standard for critically ill patients. The ANZICS-CORE currently holds international partnerships with the ICNARC in the UK and other organizations in countries such as Hong Kong and Singapore. Therefore, further development on a global scale is highly likely. Please refer to the website of ANZICS-CORE for further information
