In January 2016, a high-profile local inquest examined the death of Jasmine Lapsley, a six year old child who sadly died after choking on a grape. One of Bangors post-ACCS Clinical Fellows (not involved with the case) attended the inquest with the intention of sharing any learning points at a CPD Day for Emergency Medical Service (EMS) colleagues we were due to hold six weeks later.
Upon releasing the CPD Day programme, organisers realised some EMS colleagues were profoundly uncomfortable about this talk, stating concerns such as 'talking publicly about lessons learned might upset the bereaved family'.
They decided to ask all delegates at the CPD day what they thought of the inclusion of this item on the conference programme before and after the talk. This poster shows the results.
In conclusion, EMS colleagues and organisations may need support to embrace opportunities from case-based learning, but research is also needed to explore the wishes and opinions of bereaved families regarding the dissemination of any case-based lessons that need to be learned.
