Event description
What should matter for older people attending the Emergency Department (A&E)?

About this Event

This important meeting is designed to harness opinions on what really matters to older people when they attend the emergency department. The results from this meeting will be used to support a research study supported by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine and University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, which it is hoped will enhance the quality of care provided to older people in the future.

All of the following are welcome to attend:

  • Members of the public interested in Emergency Care and Healthcare in general
  • Patients, Relatives and other people who have used the emergency department (A&E) in the past
  • Healthcare professionals (Doctors, Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, Allied Health Professionals and Paramedics) who deliver emergency care
  • Anyone else with an interest in emergency care delivery such as healthcare managers, GPs, charity groups

The day will be delivered in an informal and friendly setting, and lunch and refreshments will be provided. During the morning session, participants will be asked to discuss what matters to older people in small groups of between about four and six people. During the afternoon session, participants will then be asked to prioritise what they think matters most.

A small gratuity to cover reasonable travel expenses will be provided courtesy of Plymouth Hospitals Charity.

There is ample free parking at Buckfast Abbey, which is located just off the A38 between Exeter and Plymouth.

The conference centre has wheelchair access.

Certificates of attendance can be provided if required.
