This national CPD conference chaired by Liz Deutsch, Consultant Nurse (acute medicine) who is currently undertaking an NIHR funded PhD Research Fellowship in Discharge Practice and Risk Assessment, focuses on improving discharge planning and practice.

The Care Quality Commission recently reported; “Many acute beds in all hospitals are occupied by patients who no longer need them and indeed whose recovery may be jeopardised by them staying in hospital too long. Delayed discharges are not just an inconvenience; they lead to poorer experiences for patients and prevent hospitals providing responsive care for other patients requiring acute care and, frequently, for patients needing admission for planned procedures.” (Care Quality Commission, 2nd March 2017)

Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will provide you with the latest evidence and practical tools to improve discharge practice in your service. By attending you will learn how to; change the way discharge planning works learning from organisations who have achieved 0% of overstaying older people, deliver effective Discharge Planning from acute care, ensure the effective use of Discharge Protocols and tools in practice, monitor progress against the NICE Guideline on Transition between inpatient hospital settings and community or care home settings for adults with social care needs, improve safety at discharge and transfer of care, change the way you discharge the frail elderly and develop the role of the Discharge Coordinator, take a collaborative approach to improving safety at discharge and transfer of care, and improve patient transition pathways including a re-enablement programme to promote independence and hospital discharge optimisation. Plus an extended session by Liz Sargeant, ECIP Clinical Lead Integration Health and Social Care, NHS Improvement will provide practical steps and tools for good discharge practice though interactive group work and discussion.
