Advance and Urgent Care Planning Accelerator Conference

Event details


July 6


10:00 am - 03:00 pm

Hear reflections and shared learning on implementing Coordinate My Care (CMC) from Advance Care Planning project teams

The Health Innovation Network AHSN South London invite you to our Advance Care Planning Accelerator Conference.

The Health Innovation Network (HIN) is the Academic Health Science Network for South London. In July 2020, the HIN were successfully awarded funding to deliver a programme to increase use and quality of shared electronic advance/urgent care plans using Co-ordinate my Care (CMC). The programme concentrated on clinical engagement.

Through in-depth interviews with clinicians and STPs/ICS leads and an analysis of CMC data, the HIN identified a number of opportunity areas to make a significant impact and drive uptake and quality use of CMC. The HIN supported eight projects in total, with at least one project in each ICS/STP area.

Although disrupted by the COVID19 pandemic all projects have made good progress and this event will showcase each of the projects, with project teams giving their reflections and sharing learning from their work. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions to each of the project teams.

The event is open for registration for health or social care professionals with an interest in advanced care planning and you are welcome to join any or all of the three sessions of the event – please see agenda details below.
