“Improving the identification and management of deteriorating patients is a major patient safety priority for the NHS. In these unprecedented times, spotting deterioration and acting quickly has become more important than ever.”

UCL Partners 2020

This conference focuses on recognising and responding to the deteriorating patient and ensuring best practice including the use of NEWS2. 

“The use of NEWS2 will ensure that patients who are deteriorating, or at risk of deteriorating, will have a timely initial assessment by a competent clinical decision maker. NEWS2 should supplement clinical judgement in assessing the patient’s condition.”

The Royal College of Physicians, 2020

“We must improve the way we spot sepsis and save lives. Sepsis is such a devastating condition and I’ve been so incredibly moved to listen to stories from families who have lost loved ones. We must do all we can to stop it.”

Matt Hancock, former Secretary of State for Health 2021

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. The conference will include National Developments including the recent recommendations from the Royal College of Physicians on NEWS2 and Covid-19, and implementing the recommendations from the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch Report Investigation into recognising and responding to critically unwell patients. The conference will include practical case study based sessions on identifying patients at risk of deterioration, improving practice in patient observations, responding to the deteriorating patient, improving escalation and understanding success factors in escalation, sepsis & covid-19, involving patients and families in recognising deterioration, and  improving the communication and use of NEWS2 not only in an acute setting but also in the community and at the interface of care.
