The NHS Critical Care Virtual Summit: Future-Proofing ICU
The countries focus on critical care services in England has increased because of Covid-19. A significant proportion of hospitalised patients with Covid-19 require help with breathing, including mechanical ventilation and other services critical care staff and units provide.
Delivering sufficient critical care capacity goes beyond physical infrastructures – such as having more beds and equipment – and requires sufficient numbers of trained and available staff.
The NHS Critical Care Virtual Summit: Future-Proofing ICU conference aims to celebrate the current efforts of ICU staff, in this time of unprecedented strain, via best practice and practical insight. We will also take a look at some key areas of potential improvement including:
- Understanding intensive care staffing, occupancy and capacity
- Infection control
- Crisis management and emergency preparedness
- Clinical Information Systems
NHS staff and services will continue to be tested to their limits over the coming months, this short but high-value session aims to bring peers together from across the UK to share best practice and outcomes.
Registration is now open and is free for all NHS staff.
