“Our staffing must be safe, sustainable, efficient and able to provide competent and compassionate care to our patients and people we care for. Better workforce planning and management of staff resources is needed to improve quality of care, staff productivity and financial control.” Leading Change Adding Value: A framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff, May 2016

This national summit will focus on delivering safe staffing and improving nurse staffing levels in line with the new National Framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff and the National Quality Board expectations which are reflected in the Care Quality Commission inspection framework, and which form the basis of the recently launched NHS Improvement draft improvement guide ‘Safe staffing improvement resources: adult inpatients in acute care’. Prof Mark Radford Director of Nursing NHS Improvement will give a national update covering the improvement guide recommendations.

The important issues of skill mix, acuity monitoring, recognizing red flag events and escalation will be discussed. Delegates will be updated on implementing the national guidance on safe staffing levels including the use of the new Care Hours Per Patient Day (CHPPD) metric and on optimising your workforce to reduce reliance on temporary staff, realising the benefits of eRostering and working with National Agency Rules: Making Agency Rate Caps work for you. Through expert extended sessions and practical NHS Trust case studies delivered by experienced nurse directors, the conference will take a practical approach to supporting you to review and improve nursing staffing and skill mix in your service.
