iSRRS 2018: Prevention & Treatment of Deterioration

The 14th International Conference on Rapid Response Systems & Medical Emergency Teams

The International Society for Rapid Response Systems will join with the HSJ’s Patient Safety Congress and Patient Safety Awards in 2018 to deliver a two-day landmark event to help dramatically improve patient outcomes and safety in healthcare.

The International Conference on Rapid Response Systems & Medical Emergency Teams is the leading deteriorating patients and rapid response meeting in the world, addressing the number one cause of avoidable deaths in hospital.

In 2018 it will be co-located with the Congress on 9-10 July at Manchester Central in a move which will deliver more sessions and bring together clinical experts and leading voices on patient safety.

Key themes to be addressed in 2018 include:

  • World leading clinicians and researchers discussing best practice and innovation from Britain, Europe, America, Asia and Australia
  • Why hospitals aren’t safer: what they must do to be better (clinician led change, the patient role)
  • Managing deterioration from care home to intensive care
  • How to make it easy to do the right thing
  • Measuring and improving rapid response processes and outcomes
  • First reports of new rapid response multicentre studies

  • The acute care - end of life care interface
