Nursing keynote - Wednesday 15th 2017

Good Decision Hunting, Matthew Norridge

Decision making is a key influence on patient outcomes. A greater understanding of decision making will help us to support and develop them to make the best decisions in the future. Developing people needs to continue with resource constraints in the current healthcare climate. Development of services needs to navigate these constraints while still providing quality.

Changes in approaches require the team to follow the vision. Matthew will explore how he has led a team through these changes and how we can obtain and use information about people's decisions for targeted development.

Matthew is a nationally recognised senior nursing expert & lecturer in paediatric critical care, cardiac care and child health based at Kings College London. His credibility as a clinician is supported by his role as a nursing manager within the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, as well as being Lead Nurse for Education at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Guy’s & St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. He is a skilled communicator and innovative educationalist. Matthew also provides education consultancy to the service development charity, Novick Cardiac Alliance, and as an external advisor to the United Kingdom Parliamentary Health Ombudsman.

Battling sepsis on World Sepsis Day and beyond

by Jennifer Yang-Meslet
13 September 2018
This World Sepsis Day, over 20,000 people will die from the condition, including 120 in the UK, and according to the Dr Foster research unit at Imperial College London, more deaths from sepsis are being reported. However, when drilling down further into the data, the main reason for the increase is improved awareness of sepsis. Doctors and nurses are recognising deteriorating patients earlier and are coding sepsis cases more accurately. This has led to a rise in coding for sepsis, and a subsequent increase in known sepsis-related deaths.
