About this event

NHS Resolution’s Safety and Learning team are hosting a virtual forum to share the key themes from our latest reports which led to claims in the Emergency Department in England between 2014 and 2018.  Recognising the unique challenges and diversity of clinical presentations seen in Emergency Departments, our forum focuses on: high value and fatalities; missed fractures; falls and pressure ulcers.

Clinical themes extracted from our claims data can provide a unique insight to enhance safety, patient experience and strengthen evidence to improve and redesign practices. Claim numbers for emergency medicine have risen in recent years and we have identified areas to improve service.   The purpose of the forum is to share insight and promote spread of experiential learning in collaboration with the Royal Colleges of Emergency Medicine and Nursing to inform best service and practice pathways.

We acknowledge our reports have been published during unprecedented times for the NHS and staff working in EDs. While ED claim numbers are higher than most other specialties, it is useful to know they are low in comparison to patient activity/ acuity.

Please note registration is restricted to NHS staff only.
