Accident & Emergency Care Study Day

"Most useful day in a long time”, "Each session gave a new innovative idea" – just two of the comments we’ve had so far about the Accident & Emergency Care study days at Derby Teaching Hospitals.

Meeting the changing demand of the population is one of the biggest challenges facing the NHS with Emergency Medicine being hit particularly hard.

Hosted by CHKS ‘excellence in emergency care’ award winners, the Accident & Emergency Care study day will include a tour and presentations from clinical and operations directors and leads on a range of themes, including: Emergency Department design and care pathways, maintaining flow, system transformation, continuous improvement, what makes a top hospital: accident and emergency care, frail elderly assessment and the short stay unit.

If you are facing challenges of Emergency Department blockages, pathway limitation, increased demand and challenging targets then this study day will provide a forum to share ideas and see best practice in action.

“Our day with colleagues at Derby Teaching Hospital NHS Trust showed us the art of the possible in relation to patient flow. The walk through of the whole acute pathway by clinical leaders gave insight into how a coordinated team can deliver safe, effective care, with the patient at the centre. We found the whole day a valuable team building exercise, and will adapt many of the Derby ideas to our local system.” Jonathan Ellis, Divisional Director, Medicine at Milton Keynes Hospital.
