Countdown to 'Effective Theatres Summit'
The Effective Operating Theatres Summit will take place as a virtual conference on Wednesday 9 June 2021.
During and beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is crucial that operating theatres are functioning at their optimum level. Not only do theatres provide critical patient interventions, but they are also responsible for a substantial proportion of both the total expenditure and income generated at every acute hospital. The Effective Operating Theatres Summit will focus on the Effective Operating Theatre; Improving Quality, Safety, Productivity and Patient Experience.
Through national updates, practical case studies and extended interactive sessions, the conference aims to support you to restore and improve productivity and practice in your theatre and manage demand following delays due to COVID-19.
High profile speakers presenting at the event include Professor Tim Briggs CBE, The National Director for Clinical Quality and Efficiency NHS England/Improvement and GIRFT Programme Chair (Getting it Right First Time). He will discuss the importance of ‘Getting it right first time in the operating theatre’, including:
- reducing variation in practice and outcomes
- meeting demand and ensuring safety during COVID-19
- improving productivity and supporting teams to understand drivers of the different types of downtime
- learning from the Getting it Right First Time (GIRFT) Programme
