Reducing & Monitoring Hospital Deaths attributable to problems in care
Monday 30 September 2013
Hallam Conference Centre, London
The NHS Mandate states that reducing hospital deaths attributable to problems in care is a key area where progress
will be expected. This conference follows our previous reducing hospital mortality conferences and focuses on reducing hospital deaths attributable to problems in care. Sessions will include meeting the new indicator, learning from the Francis Inquiry, understanding how to recognise which deaths are attributable to problems in care and are therefore avoidable. Case study sessions will focus on how to monitor and reduce mortality, improving quality and saving lives in your service or organisation.
-All hospital trusts, regardless of whether they are outliers, need to examine, understand and explain their SHMI – and identify where performance may be falling short. Trusts with a low mortality rate could also provide valuable learning about how quality of care can be improved”
