Workshops

Dr Sabarigirivasan Muthukrishnan, Swindon for Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust - Innovative and research focussed older adults’ mental health crisis and home treatment service - REACT


Community REACT ( Response Enhanced Assessment Crisis and Treatment ) service is the first and still the only service for older adults with mental health crisis in Wales for the Cardiff and Vale residents. It is a bespoke service in UK supporting older adults with both functional and dementia diagnoses with its service specifications.

It’s the BMJ’s highly commended mental health team of the year 2017 and had been shortlisted for three Nursing Times awards categories in 2017. It had shown in economic evaluation that every pound invested in it will save £6.34. The service has obtained circa £230K for research into patient and public benefit from Welsh Assembly Government for a 2 years research project.

The REACT research team will present their reflections on scientifically managing and preventing mental health crisis in older adults.

Dr Prasad Kalakala, Jean Ramsdale and Josephine Broderick, Royal Albert Edward Infirmary Wigan - Implementing an acute psychogeriatric model in reducing the length of stay and readmissions rates in a district general hospital

The age well unit is a 14 bedded psychogeriatric ward based at RAEI. A high percentage (3/4) of the patients admitted has dementia/delirium as well as complex medical and social problems.

  • Partnership working includes a pathway for patients into community step down.

  • EMI beds supported by the RAID consultant psychiatrist where long term care decisions will be agreed.

  • Weekly joint medical/psychiatric MDTs in which the patients are discussed and a holistic treatment and care plan is agreed.

  • For those who have severe physical problems due to their mental health condition, access to ECT within the DGH.

  • Transfer of care to the care home liaison team and LLAMS service where applicable.

This model has resulted in a reduced length of stay, lower readmission rates of this frail, complex cohort and reduced inappropriate admissions to care homes and to psychiatry wards.
