Presentations and materials from London’s Urgent and Emergency Care Improvement Collaborative event held on 13 March 2018.
This is the fourth in a series of six sessions. More than 160 colleagues from London’s health and care took part in exploring how best to support people for whom getting better and returning home is the most challenging when they require unplanned care, particularly those that are elderly.
The London Urgent and Emergency Care Improvement Collaborative events give health and care leaders a dedicated space to discuss the most complex issues facing their local areas and how these issues need to be acknowledged and responded to. The day provides an important opportunity to hear about best practice, discuss and challenge the most complex issues occurring locally, agree local priorities and gain from peers and others in the Improvement Collaborative.
The programme for the fourth event included learning from good practice in key areas including supporting people to come home sooner; using Day of Care surveys for improvement; building capability within care homes; and improving the management of mental health problems in physically frail people living in care homes.
The day was also supported with involvement from several patient representatives. Additionally, Professor Brian Dolan, visiting Professor of Nursing at Oxford Institute for Nursing, Midwifery & Allied Health Research, took the opportunity to update delegates and inspire them about the 70 days to end pyjama paralysis campaign, the next phase of the #EndPJparalysis movement.
