Recognising and Responding to the Deteriorating Patient
Wednesday 30 April 2014
Hallam Conference Centre, London
This one day conference 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 focus on moving forward with the implementation of the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) the pilot of which was released last year.
This conference follows the recent report from the National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcomes and Death “Time to Intervene” which finds that a third of in-hospital cardiac arrests are avoidable with proper assessment and intervention...the most worrying finding is that patients are dying unnecessarily as a result of inadequate care in hospital.
