The Deteriorating Patient Summit focuses on recognising and responding to the deteriorating patient through improving the reliability of patient observations and ensuring quality of care to reduce failure to rescue of acutely ill patients. The conference opens with a National Update from Dr Matt Inada-Kim National Clinical Advisor Deterioration NHS Improvement National Clinical Advisor Sepsis NHS England Consultant Acute Physician & Sepsis Lead, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, & Clinical Lead for Deterioration & Sepsis, Wessex Patient Safety Collaborative on developments and improving the effectiveness of the National Early Warning Score (NEWS). The conference will also focus on implementing the patient safety alert and toolkit on supporting safer care of deteriorating patients.

“For clinicians to appropriately and reliably manage (detect, communicate and escalate) sepsis and all cause deterioration, the NHS should move to using NEWS2 as the single language of sickness across all conditions and settings…. When patients are admitted as emergencies, the exact cause of deterioration is often unclear, and separating the pathways for sepsis from other causes of deterioration is harmful. We have a wonderful opportunity to standardise the management of sepsis and deterioration and radically improve the care of acutely unwell patients across England.” Matt Inada-Kim, National Clinical Advisor NHS England

The conference continues with a practical case study based sessions on identifying patients at risk of deterioration, improving practice in patient observations, responding to the deteriorating patient, and improving the communication of NEWS at the interface of care. There will also be a focus on investigating avoidable deaths where deterioration has not been recognized. Extended sessions will focus on identification of deterioration, and improving the response to sepsis, including the new NICE Quality Standard for Sepsis. 

This conference will enable you to:
• Network with colleagues who are working to improve the recognition and management of deteriorating patients
• Learn from outstanding practice in improving care for deteriorating patients
• Reflect on national developments and learning including latest evidence on NEWS
• Develop your skills in identifying deteriorating patients
• Understand how you can improve the communication of NEWS at the interface of care
• Develop your skills in the investigations of avoidable deaths where deterioration was not recognized
• Self assess, reflect and expand your skills in the management of sepsis
• Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
