Now in its ninth year, Open Forum Events invite you to attend the very latest conference in their urgent care portfolio. With an enviable reputation for delivering health and social care events, the Effectively Managing Patient Flow event will reinforce the tradition for delivering informative and topical conference agendas, created to disseminate relevant learning to satisfy delegate needs.
The delivery of timely urgent care relies on the capacity to navigate patients through the system safely and efficiently. During the pandemic the management of patients has been under tremendous stress, due to the extra demand and restrictive practices. Reduced patient flow curtails patients from accessing the treatment they require at the time they need it, inevitably delivering poorer outcomes.
Urgent care is delivered across all sectors of the NHS and the responsibility for maintaining the flow of patients is far reaching. This conference will bring together professionals working within primary, secondary, community and social care to exchange knowledge, share best practice and shape improvement.
A seizing up of the NHS machine is a source of much frustration for both patients and staff so join us at Effectively Managing Patient Flow to discover how it can be fixed.
The conference content will discuss relevant issues, delivered by an expert speaker line up, and encourage attendees to immerse themselves in conversations to determine potential solutions.
Delegates attending this CPD accredited event will leave with a greater understanding of the issues of patient flow and its impact on urgent care provision, plus an appreciation of the challenges and opportunities in providing a sustainable service that is reactive to demand.
Dr Boyle will discuss why crowding is a serious problem and propose solutions to this vexed problem.
The NHS Long Term Plan is driving forward the transition from reactively providing appointments to proactively caring for people in the communities the NHS serves. Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are small enough to provide the personal, trusted care valued by patients and GPs, but large enough to have impact and economies of scale through better collaborations between practices and others in the local health and social care system. PCNs will be expected to provide several national service specifications: structured medication reviews, enhanced health in care homes, supporting early cancer diagnosis'; anticipatory care, cardiovascular disease case-finding and taking locally agreed action to tackle health inequalities.
Practical example of how to address poor flow and improve patient safety and care, use available capacity effectively and save money.
Allocated planned time for speakers to receive questions from the audience and induce further discussion.
