The Covid-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented context in which to re-think urgent and emergency care pathways. Social distancing requirements have shrumnk the capacity of emergency departments, forcing ED clinicians to review thresholds for admission and to develop alternative routes to acute assessment and care. Crowded waiting rooms carry clinical risk and the understandable fear of contracting Covid-19 has changed patients' help seeking behaviours.
This event will look at how patients with the greatest need and the most acute conditions can recieve urgent and emergency care in the quickest and safest way, whilst those with less acute conditions also recieve appropriate and high-quality care potentially in other settings.
This event will take place on Tuesday 29th September online from 9-10:30am, and Nigel Edwards, Chief Executive, Nuffield Trust will chair the event.
