Collaborative Working to Reduce Paediatric A&E Attendance
Take one day out to benchmark your experiences with other paediatric community and emergency teams from across the country to share, learn and develop new strategies to reduce A&E attendance. Address the challenges of re-admittance and improve your strategies to keep children closer to home by focussing on developing community teams and roles, setting up and developing short stay assessment units and working collaboratively across community and emergency teams and with your patients’ parents. Attend with your MDT and leave this day with the skills and knowledge to reduce paediatric A&E attendance.
Reducing paediatric A&E attendance requires effective collaboration with community teams, emergency teams and assessment units and this conference is your opportunity to network and build an implementable, collaborative plan that will support your community team to keep children at home for longer. You will also have the opportunity to benchmark your engagement with parents, develop new tactics to avoid admissions and progress your existing services to ensure that children are seen and treated smoothly in the right place.
This interactive and case study driven NHS conference will help you to overcome the barriers and obstacles for reducing paediatric A&E attendance. Discover realistic ways that your service can:
- Grow an efficient and collaborative service
- Explore the impact of Short Stay Paediatric Assessment Units
- Implement nurse-led service collaboration

- Incorporate techniques to improve parental competencies for children with complex needs
- Develop a multi-disciplinary team to communicate effective discharge planning to parents
- Benchmark your services with other leading trusts to develop new strategies
