The Irish Heart Attack Audit (IHAA) Governance Committee was established in 2019, after responsibility for the audit of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) care was transferred to the National Office for Clinical Audit (NOCA). The PPI representatives contribute to conversations about governance, audit reporting and more. The first heart attack audit is currently under development. The role of the public and/or patient (PPI) representatives is equal to that of all other Committee members. The Committee meets quarterly, and as required.
The Irish Heart Attack Audit (IHAA) Governance Committee comprises of 19 members, of which two are public and/or patient (PPI) representatives. The PPI representatives are recruited in line with the NOCA Patient and Public Involvement Framework. The term for Committee members runs for three years.
