Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This pilot project will assess the feasibility of data collection into a renal registry in Australia and New Zealand. It will allow refinement of registry protocols and reporting mechanisms. It will assess the feasibility, accuracy and usefulness of outcome reporting. It will allow the USANZ Renal Registry Steering Committee to assess the risks and benefits of wider participation in the registry. Individual service providers contributing data to the registry will benefit from the ability to audit their own clinical service and benchmark against national and international data sets. Service quality improvements may flow from this information.
The Registry will capture and record data on diagnosis by procedure type, technique by procedure type (e.g. laparoscopic/ robotic/ open), average patient risk factors, complication rate (risk adjusted), transfusion rate (risk adjusted), mortality rate, length of stay for all patients undergoing full or partial Nephrectomies or Nephroureterectomy within Australia and New Zealand. Data will be collected once, recording details of the procedure retrospectively as soon as practicable after the surgery.

Feasibility of the Registry
This pilot project will allow the USANZ Renal Registry Steering Committee to assess the quality and timeliness of data entered by a small group of participating surgeons in Australia and New Zealand, rather than recruitment rates. The accuracy and usefulness of outcome reporting will inform the feasibility of wider participation in the registry.

Summary
Brief summary
This project aims to establish a shared registry between Australia and New Zealand in which all patient outcomes and patterns of care are measured for anyone undergoing Nephrectomy surgery.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 18 years or above and are scheduled to undergo nephrectomy or nephroureterectomy surgery in Australia or New Zealand.

Study details
All participants in this study will have the details of their nephrectomy or nephroureterectomy surgery recorded in a Registry, including diagnosis by procedure type, technique by procedure type (e.g. laparoscopic/ robotic/ open), average patient risk factors, complication rate (risk adjusted), transfusion rate (risk adjusted), mortality rate, and length of stay.

By collecting this information we hope to identify trends and improve the quality of patient care as well as guide future surgical training.
