Defining virtual wards: How virtual wards can ease NHS backlog pressures and improve patient flow
NHS England & Improvement has asked all Integrated Care Systems to extend, or introduce for the first time, the Virtual Ward model. The guidance starts a two-year funded transformation programme to support the development of Virtual Wards, including Hospital at Home.
In this free webinar an expert panel will discuss how Virtual Wards can support elective recovery and improve patient flow during the critical Winter period. Our panel will also focus on the practicalities of setting up, rolling out and managing Virtual Wards across multiple treatments and care pathways.
Headline discussion points:
NHS winter pressures and tools to support delivery.
Setting up, rolling out and managing Virtual Wards.
Impact of Virtual Wards on the Healthcare system.
Hospital at home & community based care models.
What attendees will learn:
What is a virtual ward and what needs to be in place to make virtual wards work.
Innovation and initiatives that have been used previously to support delivery.
How virtual wards can be rolled out across a system and new treatments/pathways introduced within a virtual ward.
