National Guidance on Learning from Deaths in the NHS – Wednesday 23 May

In March 2017, the National Quality Board published its guidance on Learning from Deaths. The aim was to move towards a standardised approach to investigations, improve engagement with families and maximise the lessons learned from patient deaths.

Although change was initially aimed at the NHS, the CQC said ‘We’re planning to introduce similar changes to our inspections of GP practices, adult social care, independent healthcare and ambulance NHS trusts in 2018’. Change for the private sector is just around the corner.

The seminar is relevant to both NHS employees and those managing or working in the private sector. It will help you to understand and prepare for the imminent changes.

The seminar will cover:

  • How to implement the guidance correctly and effectively
  • The governance arrangements and processes that your organisation should have in place
  • Engaging with relatives
  • The requirement to publish information
  • How to achieve an effective investigation
  • National developments

Graeme Irvine, Associate Solicitor, will host the seminar which will provide an opportunity to ask questions and network with your peers.
