​​CORE - ANZPIC Registry

 

The Australian and New Zealand Paediatric Intensive Care (ANZPIC) Registry was established by the ANZICS Paediatric Study Group in 1997 with three aims:

  • To describe paediatric intensive care practices and outcomes in Australia and New Zealand.
  • To provide contributing units with efficacy and efficiency reports that compare performance in their units against national and international standards.
  • To facilitate research in paediatric intensive care.

The Paediatric Study Group oversees the strategic development of the Registry. The Registry is located at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, Brisbane and is managed by the ANZPIC Registry Clinical Advisory Committee, the Registry Director, and the​ Registry Manager. There are links with other ANZICS projects through the Centre for Outcome and Resource Evaluation (CORE).

In Australia six PICU's exist in the state capitals. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT), the Northern Territory (NT) and Tasmania (TAS) do not have designated PICU's, although Tasmania has a combined NICU/PICU. Outside state capitals, some children are admitted to Level III Adult ICU's, whilst other children are transported to specialised PICU's. In all states, children with cardiac conditions are admitted to specialist PICU's.

In New Zealand, the Starship Children's Hospital in Auckland is the tertiary referral centre for paediatrics, including cardiac surgery. There is one specialist PICU at the Starship Children's Hospital. In some regions of New Zealand children are commonly admitted to adult ICU's.

Paediatric index of mortality (PIM) is a mortality prediction model for children in intensive care and is used by the ANZPIC Registry. The PIM model is based on eight variables collected at the time of admission to intensive care.  Below are articles relating to PIM and the diagnostic codes used in Registry coding.
