A Weekly series of Clinical Practice Webinars with SAMLondon 2020 Abstract Presentations
Wednesday 20 May – Wednesday 17 June 2020, 1900-2100
The current COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest public health challenge of our time and has significant implications for acute medicine. The Society for Acute Medicine wants to support the acute medicine community and provide resources that will help you understand and manage this crisis. We plan to do this virtually by launching a weekly series of clinical practice webinars and abstract presentations running for 5 weeks, starting on Wednesday 20 May 2020.
These virtual webinars are open to all members of the multidisciplinary team who work in acute and general medicine. They give us the opportunity to discuss and debate current COVID-19 challenges for acute medicine. They also offer a platform to the authors who successfully submitted abstracts for the postponed SAMLondon conference due to take place in May 2020, enabling them to share their work with colleagues.

Care homes, housing, health and social care learning network: Day four

This learning network, a collaborative initiative between The King's Fund and My Home Life is designed to improve and promote collaborative working between care homes and the housing, health and social care sectors.
Care home residents have some of the most complex health and social care needs in our society. They often experience gaps or discrimination in access to high-quality health care, including support for long-term physical and mental health conditions and specialist palliative care at the end of their lives.
Better partnership working between the housing, health and social care sectors and care homes could enhance the wellbeing of residents and reduce the number of avoidable hospital admissions from care homes. It could also enable older people to have more voice, choice and control over what happens to them, as they would have in their own home.

GASagain (Giving Anaesthesia Safely Again)

Returning to work after a career break or going back to work after an extended period away from work (i.e. maternity leave, research) can prove to be quite a challenge. Whatever the reason, the period of time absent from work can cause a feeling of reduced confidence and a lack of certainty about your ability to perform particular jobs when you return to work.
The GASagain course from the Royal College of Anaesthetists is structured to provide you with the strategies for managing a return to work. There will be simulation scenarios to refresh your skills plus a series of workshops, underpinned by short relevant lectures, to update you on the latest in the world of anaesthesia. We will individualise the scenarios to cater to the grade of the anaesthetist.

Webinar: Learning from adverse events


This event celebrates the launch of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF)’s new White Paper on ‘Learning from Adverse Events’.
There has been enormous progress in safety over the years, yet the frequency with which major adverse events continue to occur across nearly every sector of the economy and the extent of the pain, suffering, loss and hardship that arises, suggests a fundamental weakness in the ability of developed societies to adequately learn from the things that go wrong, and to take action that’s effective in preventing recurrence of similar events.
The 48-page document is designed to:
1.    Help organisations understand a human factors perspective to investigating and learning from adverse events.
2.    Provide key principles organisations can apply to capture the human contribution to adverse events.
Who should attend?
Anyone in any industry or service responsible for managing significant risk, and anyone involved in investigating incidents and adverse events. And of course, anyone interested in organisational learning.
