Share Communicating Complex Needs across the Interfaces of Care: enabling safe and timely transfers of care for older people

Event Details

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

The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria

The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) is dedicated to improving healthcare and supporting wealth creation through partnership working and promotion of innovation across the NHS, Academia and Industry.

With a remit to provide system-wide integration, we facilitate interactions with multiple partner organisations across the region. Principally we work with the NHS Trusts, CCGs and Universities which form our core membership, and we collaborate closely with many other stakeholder groups. We support the inclusive, collegiate approaches that are needed to address shared problems at a system level.

Wealth Creation and Health Improvement have a common requirement for innovation. The AHSN NENC supports all aspects of innovation across healthcare from creating a culture that supports the innovation through to the dissemination and adoption of effective practice and proven technologies.

We have therefore achieved the regional reach and the local buy-in that is necessary to deliver cross-organisational programmes to improve health and create wealth in the region.

The YouGov survey results from the Autumn of 2015 provide external validation of the work being undertaken by the AHSN NENC. With responses in the top third for 32 out of 33 responses relative to those of the AHSN Network Nationally, the North East and North Cumbria region are clearly leading the way in providing an effective contribution to the local innovation and health improvement landscape.
