Investigation and learning from deaths in NHS Trusts
The National Guidance on Learning from Deaths has driven a strengthening of systems of mortality case review with emphasis on learning. By collecting the data and taking action in response to failings in care, trusts will be able to give an open and honest account of the circumstances leading to a death. This National Conference focuses on improving the investigation and learning from deaths in NHS Trusts and will reflect on learning from deaths during the Covid pandemic and how mortality investigation should be managed in these cases.
The conference will discuss the role of Medical Examiners in learning from deaths which is now being extended to all non-coronial deaths wherever they occur. This conference will also update delegates on the New National Patient Safety Incident Response Framework including sharing experience from an early adopter site.
