Should Wessex implement ReSPECT process? – The NIHR CLAHRC Wessex hosted event.

24 May 2017

On May 11 2017, the NIHR CLAHRC Team brought together 44 delegates from organisations across the Wessex region and beyond as well as wide range of people including the public, paramedics, nursing staff, clinicians, managers and researchers.

The event was to examine and reflect on whether the ReSPECT approach to decision making for emergency care should be adopted. ReSPECT stands for the Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment.

Our event was just one of a number organised to hear feedback and reaction to the ReSPECT process and to discuss what barriers may exist in implementing it across the full range of health care environments

The team are now gathering anonymous feedback through an online survey, which will be pulled together and shared with those who came to the event. We look forward to seeing how the region and individual organisations within it respond going forward.

Building capacity for academic writing.. by Professor Anne Rogers

‘publication tsunami that is now an exponential wave’. The effects of this tsunami are well rehearsed: the enormous pressure on peer review processes; reduction in the time researchers have to read individual outputs; and, perhaps most commented on, the growth of a commercial market of fee-for-publication-based journals which lack the usual bulwarks of scientific credibility read blog >

Patient and public involvement is vital to the success of the CLAHRC.

We would be pleased to hear from you if you are interested in becoming involved in our research and implementation.
