BSA Annual Conference 2019: Translating Research into Practice

Description

Register NOW at https://www.thebsa.org.uk/events/event/bsa-annual-conference-2019/

We are pleased to announce that the British Society of Audiology Annual Conference, entitled Translating Research into Practice, will be taking place on Wednesday 5th June 2019 at the Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton.

The BSA Annual Conference continues to be the leading UK scientific forum to bring together clinicians and researchers who have an interest in hearing, tinnitus and balance.

This event promises to offer delegates the latest in audiology research, education and expertise, with inspiring speakers and informative sessions.

This event is FREE for BSA members and only £45 for non-members.

Programme Highlights

The theme of this year's conference will focus on translational research including complex hearing loss, dementia, hearing aids and hearing implants. Delegates will get to explore how current research may fit into clinical practice within interactive sessions with today's researchers in the field of audiology.

As well as traditional conference lectures we will be hosting grand round sessions.

What is a Grand Round?

We have all heard about ward rounds - where medics review each patient under their care to plan the care required. Grand rounds are a methodology of medical education based on this idea of reviewing an individual's case; exploring the assessment and treatment options in an unusual or challenging case. During this grand round session we will explore how evolving research might be translated into clinical practice with a panel of experts.

Other programme highlights include managing dementia with hearing loss in care homes, supporting people live well with cognitive and hearing impairment in the community, new cochlear implant criteria, and much more!

Highlighted speakers include Dr Ted Killan, Dr Brian Crosbie, Emma Hooper, Kristina Link, Debi Vickers, and more!

Sepsis + Conference 2019

Description

Over the last five years we have made terrific strides in improving the awareness, recognition and treatment of patients with suspected sepsis. When I say ‘we’, I am talking about patients, their families, and health and care professionals who have all become more vigilant in ‘thinking sepsis’ and have worked together to advance the sepsis agenda. This collaboration has enabled a sustained, national improvement in screening and treatment from 50%, to 90% within one hour of deterioration.

But, we must be relentless in our ambition – the work must continue. Infections that can lead to sepsis are responsible for 40% of emergency admissions and are the admission reason for two thirds of hospital deaths. As the population ages and lives with ever increasing comorbidities, the threat of sepsis also grows. This, coupled with the growing threat of antibiotic resistance means we must carefully balance expedient treatment with antibiotic stewardship.

Whilst we still strive for a ‘sepsis test’ and standard definition, we must acknowledge the progress we have made in both measuring response, and crucially, outcomes through the Suspicion of Sepsis Insight Dashboard. The Dashboard has enabled clinicians, for the first time, to assess the impact of sepsis improvement programmes and determine the interventions that are working, and disseminate them everywhere. It’s also an example of what can be achieved through cross-system collaboration.

Sepsis remains a challenging diagnosis to make, particularly in the urgent care setting, and for us to make further inroads into its improvement, we must be consistent and reliable at spotting a sick and deteriorating patient and then considering if sepsis might be present. Enter the National Early Warning Score, or NEWS2. We must support the implementation of NEWS2 in our workplaces and across the system. It provides us with a standardised language of sickness that healthcare professionals at every level can use and recognise to identify those at risk of sepsis.

The efforts and progress made in sepsis improvement through our collaborations is terrific but there is still a lot more work to do. At the conference you will hear more from colleagues and partners from across the system on the points I have touched on here. We are united in our ambition to improve outcomes and save lives – a joined up approach will help all of us realise this goal!

Tickets are currently on general sale at £150. As we have identified via our research team that your organisation might benefit from attending this event we are able to offer discounted tickets at £99. These tickets can only be accessed via our delegate team ([email protected] ) quoting code MS99. More information can be found www.sepsis2019.co.uk .

Knowlex: Patient Safety 2019

Description

In December 2018 NHSI announced a consultation on Patient Safety as part of the 10-year plan. In the Spring of 2019, NHSI will publish the consultations taken for a new national Patient Safety Strategy that will be part of the NHS Long Term Plan. In June in Birmingham, we will announce the plans for local delivery and steps for implementation.

In healthcare systems all over the world there are times when things go tragically wrong. We all understand that healthcare is a people business, and that with the very best intentions anything involving people is liable to human error.

Improving safety is about reducing risk, minimising mistakes and establishing the necessary checks and balances. It is also the evolution of a 70year old free of charge at the point of access national service to a 24/7 seamless provision.

The NHS has embarked on a journey to become one of the safest healthcare systems in the world. In England over the last 4 years improvements have been achieved. We have had a complete overhaul of CQC standards, and comprehensive inspections of all trusts, as well as primary care providers.

Patient safety is also a main driver in achieving cost savings and efficiencies across the whole health economy.

We have seen the introduction of the new protections for those who raise concern and whistleblow, which means that the NHS is now more transparent. There are now Patient Safety Collaboratives, each established and led locally delivering stakeholder owned improvement programmes.

The NHS approach to patient safety is widely recognised as world-leading and their continuous work with national and international partners ensures continued improvement which will benefit patients.

The “Patient Safety 2019” conference with the input of leading quality and safety experts will look at what needs to be done over the coming years to improve even further.

Topics covered on the day will include, Leadership, Change Management, Preventing HAI’s, Never Events and Reducing Medication Error. There will also be a progress report on the Patient Safety Incident Management system (PSIMS) which in April 2018 completed the Alpha phase and is about to move into the Beta stage of development.

 

Join over 400 healthcare professionals to drive this agenda forward through innovation and sharing best practice.

Tickets are on general sale at £150 or £99 for readers of CSJ. To book contact our delegates team quoting code CSJ99, more information at www.patientsafety2019.co.uk
