Event description

Description

The care system is challenged to meet the needs of an ageing population and the increasing numbers of older people living with frailty means it has never been more relevant to focus on our patient’s whole journey rather than the discreet part of the system we are part of. This conference which is organised by the Academic Health Science for the North East and North Cumbria and NHS

Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group is specifically aimed at:

  • Hospital Multidisciplinary Teams
  • Emergency Department Staff
  • Primary Care and Community Services: health and social care teams, third sector
  • Care Home Staff
  • Discharge Support Teams
  • Secondary Care Interface Teams
  • Mental health teams

Come along to hear our keynote speakers: Professor Chris Gray, Medical Director, NHS England (North East and Cumbria) and Liz Lees, Senior Clinical Doctoral Nurse - acute care, University of Manchester.

Topics covered will include:

  • learning from the experience of patients and their carers
  • care needs and system needs
  • interfaces between primary, community, secondary and mental health services
  • social care during hospital admission and supporting discharge services
  • dementia and complex co-morbidities

CALL FOR POSTERS


Would you like to showcase your work as a poster?

We are keen to showcase as many examples of best practice and innovative approaches to transfer of care for older people as possible. This includes transferring care between organisations in community settings such as care homes, primary care and community teams, as well as across the interface of primary and secondary care. Submissions will be considered on any aspect of transfer of care for older people including - but not limited to – models of care that focus on the patient’s whole journey, quality improvement, research, audit, education and training. Priority will be given to submissions with evidence of impact and sustainability. We would also like to hear about what didn’t work for you and why.

Deadline for abstract submission: Monday 31st July 2017

Abstracts should be around 200 words and provide enough detail to allow the panel to get a good sense of your work. For research and audit submissions, results must be included.

Applications will be considered by a panel of the organising committee.
Decisions will be communicated by email during the week commencing 14th August 2017.
