A Quality Improvement approach to improving Anticipatory Care Planning & Key Information Summary access at St John’s Hospital

A Quality Improvement approach

Poster presentation from the acute medicine unit at St John’s Hospital, W Lothian, Scotland

This collaborative project showed that ward staff were able to identify people with deteriorating health for anticipatory care planning and use the electronic key information summary to read plans uploaded by general practitioners. Staff members need support and training to ensure that timely identification and ongoing care planning are effective and reliable.
