Professor David Oliver discusses clinical resourcing in the NHS, and how the Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) new Our Future Health programme of events, activities and publications are being organised to provide a forum for debate.
The Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) National Audit for Inpatient Falls (NAIF) report 2017 shows that although the prevention of inpatient falls across hospitals in England and Wales has improved slightly, many patients are not receiving the required assessments which can help prevent falls in hospitals.
The National Hip Fracture Database's (NHFD's) ninth annual report shows that while more patients are receiving early surgery and surviving a hip fracture, two in five are not receiving all of the recommended elements of a hip fracture programme that represent ‘best practice’.
On 10 May 2017, the RCP hosted ‘Learning from mortality reviews to improve patient safety’ as part of it's Keeping patients safe seminar series. The event discussed how the National Mortality Case Record Review (NMCRR) can improve care and keep patients safe.
