PICANet Annual Dataset Freeze 2024

The PICANet dataset for the period 01.01.2021 to 31.12.2023 will be frozen at 12 midnight on 01st March 2024; therefore, it is essential that by the close of Thursday 29th February, all event data for this period is completed and all validation queries resolved. 

For children admitted prior to 31st December 2023 who remain as inpatients on your PICU please ensure that all daily intervention data up to and including 31st December 2023 is complete. 

The data freeze has been brought forward this year as planned, in line with the reduction in the submission time of data to PICANet from three months to two months (PCCS standards 2021). 

Thank you all for your efforts to work to enter and validate the data. We look forward to publishing the level 3 National Paediatric Critical Care Audit State of the Nation Report 2024 later this year.
