We’d like to thank the speakers, sponsors, attendees and supporting associations who contributed to the success of the 6TH Annual Emergency Department Management Conference in July 2014.

Top challenges facing the ED in the next 6-12 months were highlighted as models of care, improving NEAT, managing ambulances, workforce, budget and embedding change. Other important information shared and discussed at the conference included:

  • Knowing your department: What works well, what doesn’t work well? What are peer hospitals doing? Innovations may not fit the environment so things that have been developed in one ED may not work in other hospitals.
  • Revisit innovations and try them again – this requires buy in from all. Every hospital experiences staff changes so as things change, it is important to educate and engage with all staff regularly about changes and improvements.
  • Ensure there is capacity to efficiently and rapidly problem solve, involving all levels of the organisation.
  • Leadership and ownership – involve everybody, improve communication, and involve Executive Management level.
  • Focusing on time efficiency can reduce delays and lead to a reduction of people in the ED
  • Improving patient centred care and partnership in care: enhancing patient safety leads to improved patient satisfaction and the overall patient journey.
  • Driving whole of hospital reform means every part is accountable including staff, the patient, and the community.
