Target group

Hospitals that are aiming at improving their postoperative pain therapy and that are honestly interested in evaluating their own patients' outcome compared to national averages are our project's target group.

As QUIPS includes all patients who have undergone surgery (and not only those who are cared for by acute pain units or who are equipped with PCA-pumps), the hospitals' persons in charge of the project should not be members of the particular departments (e.g. anesthesiology, surgery, nursing) but build a team out of all clinical partners who are involved in postoperative patient care (for example, an interdisciplinary task force 'acute pain' could be established).

From experience we know that the best way to start QUIPS is to choose two or three surgical departments with no more than 5 - 6 wards at the beginning.
