The Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre (ICNARC) are an independent, scientific, not-for-profit organisation established in 1994. They work to facilitate improvements in the structure, processes, outcomes, and experiences of critical care – for patients and those who care for them.

The ICNARC database of over two million critical care admissions serves as a resource for multiple studies on the epidemiology of critical illness, including sepsis. It informs practice and policy on the provision, service delivery, and organisation of critical care within the NHS.

Professor Kathy Rowan is a founding Director and Head of Audit at ICNARC. Kathy was awarded the Humphry Davy Medal by the UK Royal College of Anaesthetists as a mark of distinction for her significant contribution to critical care. Kathy has co-authored 200+ peer-reviewed papers and has won over £20m in research grants.  In this session from The National Clinical Audit Event 2021: Driving Quality Improvement in Patient Care Professor Rowan shared the outcomes of the INARC’S National Audit Programme and discussed the Clinical Trials Unit.
