Care Bundle for Community Acquired Pneumonia

A care bundle for community acquired pneumonia (CAP) was devleoped as part of a BTS quality improvement project which ran in 2012-2014. The project provided useful evidence for the effectiveness of care bundles for pneumonia.

The BTS CAP care bundle is available for use by clinical teams. The bundle elements should not be changed but the format and presentation of the documents can be amended for local use. Please acknowledge BTS as the source.

BTS is not running a data collection for care bundle use, but those wishing to collect data on their practice locally may which to use Part 1 of the BTS Adult CAP audit on a local basis. Please log in or register here for access to BTS audits: https://audits.brit-thoracic.org.uk
