Acute medical pathways - responding to increased demand: the acute medicine/specialty interface

As you work to improve care for patients while managing increased demand, we want to support you as physicians, working across specialties, to develop and deliver best practice collaboratively, that will help. Physician leaders and ‘Getting it Right First Time, GIRFT, clinical leads have therefore designed a series interconnecting webinars, acute medical pathways – responding to increased demand. They aim to stimulate and guide local teams, while connecting with national guidance and linking you to practical examples and experience of best practice to help respond to increase in demand.  

In the acute medicine/specialty interface we will be sharing national guidance and real-life examples from physician leaders about how the acute medical unit can best work with acute medical teams and other speciality teams working together for efficient and effective care. There will be a panel discussion to explore how these have been delivered and how barriers to change have been identified and managed.
