Past event

RCP Mortality Conference: Collaboration and Globalisation

Join the RCP Mortality team for their second annual conference. Ideal for all healthcare professionals involved in the mortality review process, the conference will build on the themes of our sold out first ever annual conference last year.

This is a fantastic opportunity to connect and collaborate with other mortality colleagues across healthcare and share learning.

UK and international healthcare organisations will be sharing their successes, challenges and innovations. The RCP mortality team will also discuss their plans for future work.

Our conference last year was incredibly popular and sold out. So for 2019, we are in a bigger auditorium. To avoid disappointment, please book early and take advantage of our early bird discount.

"An inspiring day with lots of things to take away". "Well organised; outstanding speakers - thank you". "The mix and breadth of this conference was excellent". “Excellent day, full credit to the team at the RCP”.

Spotlight on: Dr Matt Inada-Kim

Matt is a front-line clinician and works as a consultant in Acute Medicine at Hampshire Hospitals. He is national clinical lead for deterioration and advisor for sepsis at NHS England and NHS Improvement. He is the Clinical Lead for Deterioration/Sepsis at Wessex Patient Safety Collaborative.

Matt is a renowned sepsis expert. 'An ongoing problem in this field has been the lack of a sepsis test - meaning measuring episodes, deaths, improvement and costs is challenging'. He developed a proxy, reasoning that you cannot develop sepsis without an infection, and that by measuring this population instead, we could gain useful insight into sepsis. The led to a dashboard that is in use across the UK. He is currently exploring the machine learning opportunities within this, linked to climate.

Matt has also developed a long-term national plan and supporting structures to improve processes in the recognition, escalation, communication and response to the deteriorating patient in all care settings. To this end, he is working on a single language of sickness and communication between healthcare professionals across the whole patient pathway, seeking to align policies and directives across the system, and establish standardised metrics. He has co designed free apps on deterioration for clinicians and e-learning resources that have been extensively downloaded by NHS workers.
