Event description

Description

Did the cuts to social care lead to increases in urgent care?

What's the impact of GPs in A&E?

Is it feasible to predict pressures in A&E?

What do you think are the big questions facing A&E services?


This FREE one-day session in Birmingham will bring you up to date on the most recent analysis and research into A&E delivery and operations, as well as giving you the rare opportunity to help set the priorities for future analysis.

A great opportunity to earn a day of CPD in an interactive and enjoyable setting.

There’s too often a disconnect between researchers and the realities of frontline delivery. We want to start to change that – by giving delegates the chance to explore some of the ‘Big Questions’ with us, and more importantly, to let them shape the agenda for future analysis.

We’re keen to involve a wide range of staff working in or on A&E, so this workshop would be suitable for:

  • A&E clinicians of any grade or background

  • Other staff working in A&E

  • Managers involved in A&E

  • Commissioners of A&E services

Key-note addresses will be followed by a series of parallel session where delegates will be free to attend the topics that interest them most. Then in the afternoon delegates will be involved in identifying and prioritising the next Big Questions for A&E. We'll seek funding to take forward the questions that come out on top.

Lunch and refreshments are provided.
