Ambulatory emergency care

Professional Courses

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: Development of new models of care and clinical service redesign is and will remain a focus for health services for the foreseeable future. Clinicians internationally have recognised that a new approach is needed and have successfully redesigned their systems to reduce demand by implementing a Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC) model of care. Using this mode of care appropriate patients are diagnosed and treated on the same day and sent home with on going clinical support and supervision as needed. This approach has improved both clinical outcomes and patient experience and reduced costs and pressures in the urgent care system. This day will be divided up into two parts, a morning session (10.00- 13.00) and an afternoon session (13.30-16.30). Delegates may choose between full day or half-day registrations. A number of important topics will be will presented, such as: • The Principals of Converting to ‘Same Day’ Care • System Benefits of Ambulatory Emergency Care • Sharing case studies and stories from best practice sites • Experience Based Design – Improving Patient and Staff Experience • Developing and Designing Pathways for Ambulatory Care • Understanding and Doing Sustainability FACILITATORS: Vincent Connolly, Consultant Physician and Clinical Director, Emergency Care Intensive Support Team, NHS England. Deborah Thompson, Programme Director for the NHS Ambulatory Emergency Care Network, NHS England.   More detailed descriptions of each presentation along with speaker bios can be read by downloading the PDF flyer from our website.
