The second Learning Session for the 20,000 Days Campaign starts on Thursday 6 September and will see people from across the health sector coming back together to share the work they have been doing on the following collaboratives: Better Breathing, Healthy Hearts, ERAS (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery), VHIU (Very High Intensity Users) – Integrated case management, Rapid Response and Supportive Discharge, Community Geriatric Service, Delirium Care – early onset of confusion, Hip Fracture Management, Skin Infections and Cellulitis, Transitions of Care, St John Ambulance Service , Helping High Risk People and SMOOTH (Safer Medicines Outcomes on transfer to Home).
We welcome back Brandon Bennett the senior Improvement Advisor for the Campaign who will be teaching at the Learning Session.
“When people first met back in May 2012 they learnt about the 20,000 Days Campaign, the improvement methodology we would be using and ultimately what we were trying to achieve,” says David Grayson, Clinical Lead 20,000 Days. “We have now moved into a phase where people have been out there gathering information, carrying out their PDSAs (Plan, Do, Study, Act) and working out what needs to change in order to shift the demand away from the Hospital and assist people to get treated in the community.
“We have seen some wonderful progress over the past few months and gained some interesting insights into how patients experience their care. We are looking forward to hearing about these stories and learning from one another about what we do well and what we could be doing better.”
