By using ADRe complex information on drugs is combined into a checklist providing advice on common problems. This helps nurses recognise and act on adverse drug reaction, including pain, dental pain, aggression, peptic ulcers, and sedation. In doing so, it greatly enhances the administration of medicines, and by capturing this individualised picture of the patients’ health and well-being prompts prescribers to refine dosages.
ADRe is very simple to use:

This report from the Public Policy Projects recommends:
1. Qualitative research into the benefits that well-funded social care can have on quality of life, independency, isolation, relationships and general wellbeing. This should be combined with formal quantitative research into the impacts that properly funded social care can have on the NHS, including quantifiable information about hospital bed availability and the economic impact of the reduction of accidents and preventable illness.
2. There should be clear public guidelines on the social care system and how to access social ca
On 23 June 2022, National Voices is holding an all-day conference, as we explore the topic of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), on the eve of ICSs becoming statutory bodies that cover the entirety of England. Now is the right moment to identify the changes we want to see as a result of this fundamental shift in the way the health and care system is organised. We want to see better, more equal outcomes for people, especially those not currently well supported by existing models. We also want to see more coordinated and effective care that enables people to live well, with fewer barriers between c
This webinar will look at how integration between different parts of the health system can provide solutions to some of challenges that mental health services face.

This webinar will focus on how integration between different parts of the health system can provide solutions to some of challenges that mental health services face.
With the SPOR ideals and vision for patient-partnered research, this special edition of the EMPOWER Award studies demonstrates the evolution in patient partnerships and innovative engagement strategies in diverse healthcare research. The EMPOWER Awards were meant to motivate teams to take their patient engagement to a new level. The breadth and depth of the 15 projects reveal the growing appetite to further develop patient engagement strategies and, more significantly, the extent and reach of patient-partnered research. This special edition represents the following topics: priority setting and
Development Partnerships, whilst common in other sectors, are rare in the NHS. However, these have proven remarkably successful when they’ve been implemented.
HUC, one of the highest performing NHS 111 and GP OOH providers in the country, provides Integrated Urgent and Emergency Care for a population of 3.3M in the East of England. For the past six years HUC has worked in a joint Development Partnership with Content Guru, whose storm® contact centre solution is Europe’s biggest and most advanced cloud-based communications platform.

The Big Conversation will bring people together for a range of interactive discussions, workshops and presentations, giving a space for people to talk through the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, explore continuous improvement opportunities and share fresh insights and ideas on how to promote the improvement of health and care for the benefit of everyone, those who experience services and those who provide them.
The Big Conversation will take place over two days. You can choose how much or how little you can attend for - feel free to join one session or stay for the whole time.
The Social Prescribing Standard will enable the sharing and recording of information for the whole patient journey, from initial referral, throughout the period of social prescribing and the message back to the referrer and GP at its conclusion.
The standard supports the recording and sharing of information including:
The information required to support the conversations between the link worker and the person
Information to support people, show their healthcare is joined up and avoid them having to retell their story multiple times
