Acute medical pathways - responding to increased demand: from modern ward rounds to safely home

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.  

Join us as we look at how we can modernise ward rounds, and ensure the safe patient transition home, part of our acute medical pathways - responding to increased demand series. Learn from clinicians leading improvement on how to improve multidisciplinary ward working, ensuring safe, efficient and consistent care. There will also be a discussion after the presentations exploring the key issues raised with the opportunity to ask our panel of experts your questions.
