Capacity and Demand Strategies for Bed Management
This dedicated NHS workshop will provide you with the demand and capacity modelling skills that you can transfer into your own service. Come together with your colleagues from across the country and gain practical insight to analyse capacity and demand to utilise your resources and improve your bed management. 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 bed management. 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 NHS inpatient 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 patient flow
- Use the modelling theory to drive forward care
- Implement lessons learnt from evidenced outcomes
- Improve resource utilisation
- 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 inpatient departments, learn how to embed the theory into practice and return to your trust fired up to make the necessary changes to deliver efficiency.
