Capacity and Demand - Cancer Pathway Planning
Is your service faced with the challenge to redesign and work collaboratively across cancer patient pathways to meet new targets? This dedicated workshop will provide you with the demand and capacity modelling skills that you can transfer into your own cancer service. Come together with your colleagues from across the country and gain practical insight to analyse capacity and demand and sustain your cancer service. Leave the day ready to put an action plan into place to effectively manage patients on their pathway.
This is your chance to get on the road to achieving the right capacity for the demands on your service. You will have the opportunity to explore unique tools, hear worked examples and gain evidenced understanding which you can then apply to your cancer service. Use this opportunity to network with your colleagues from other trusts and share ideas and best practice advice.
Leave this interactive workshop able to implement the tools to drive your cancer services forward. Get to grips with new knowledge and skills and learn how to:
- Create an action plan
- Delve into the principles of demand and capacity
- Cope with variation in the cancer pathway
- Use the modelling theory to drive forward care
- Implement lessons learnt from evidenced outcomes
- Meet your cancer appointment targets
- Reduce your waiting list
- Utilise new tools to improve your demand and capacity
Through interactive exercises and extensive group work, you will have the opportunity to come together with other cancer departments, learn how to embed the theory into practice and return to your trust fired up to make the necessary changes to deliver efficiency. Designed for cancer clinic leads, this day would have particular value for whole-team attendance and would be useful for:
- Heads of Service and Nursing, Clinical Leads & Consultants
- Clinical Nurse Managers, Lead Nurses
- General, Project, Transformation, Business & Operations Managers
- Administration, Service Improvement and Patient Service Managers
