Clinical Coding National Networking Forum
Bringing coders and clinicians together for one day only, this unique and empowering forum will help clinical coders to code more accurately by offering a clinical insight in to sepsis, cardiology, dementia, orthopaedic surgery and plastic surgery as well as showcasing an update on the profession update from PACC-UK.
Developed in collaboration with PACC-UK since 2015, this networking forum offers clinical coders the unique opportunity to hear from experienced clinicians and subsequently establish better, more supportive lines of communication between the two. With insightful presentations covering sepsis, gynaecology, orthopaedics, dementia, plastic surgery and of course a clinical coding update, this event is sure to live up its gold-standard reputation amongst previous delegates. Feedback from the 2016 Clinical Coding NNF includes ‘very pertinent subject matter and excellent speakers’ and ‘I already can’t wait for the next’!
