NEWS in your community: monitoring & supporting patients across all healthcare settings

  • Coldra Court Hotel Newport NP18 2LX (map)
 

The West of England AHSN is collaborating with MediWales to deliver this conference which will focus on monitoring and supporting patients outside the hospital setting (at home, in nursing and care homes) to specifically enable the measurement of vital signs to calculate a Nation Early Warning Score (NEWS) which is used when delivering care.

Free delegate places are available to NHS professionals, research and industry communities, from both sides of the bridge. We would also like to extend an invitation to companies who have or are developing various approaches to track vital signs. Though this is not about intensive care monitoring – during the event it will be considered how these tools could be used in a community setting. This would include the recording of observations, dashboards, wearable devices, remote monitoring, devices that aid recording of observation or identifying deterioration with a particular interest in wearable and non-contact tech for those with Learning Disabilities.

This event will discuss the challenges and technical issues faced in the community care setting and look at the development of potential clinical / industry collaborations to address the issues in this area. There will also be information on the support and funding available to take projects forward.

Hear from speakers from the AHSN who will present their work on the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) and from Welsh clinical colleagues who will showcase their plan going forward. An insightful look at where automation of technologies and clinical pathways could be accessible to improve an ever evolving process.
