Intelligent redesign of the cardiac pathway is a top priority for all Trusts committed to achieving an 18 week RTT, and providing equitable, quality and patient-focused cardiac care.

Trusts across the UK are now driving change throughout primary, secondary and tertiary cardiac care. Significant infrastructure redesign is pivotal to achieving the streamlined and clinically effective patient pathways needed, to make cardiac 18 week RTT a reality. National progress is variable, and concise, relevant and practical guidance can be a scarce resource.

Recognising this need, and the challenges facing Trusts committed to delivering this key health agenda, Health Service Journal and Nursing Times have collaborated with the Heart Improvement Programme to bring you an essential national conference. Exclusively solution-driven in focus, this unique national forum will unite leading experts in the field, and empower your Trust with a portfolio of strategies from a broad range of perspectives to drive your service redesign.

Attend this conference to develop – and consolidate – your ability to:

Identify and eliminate bottlenecks in cardiac diagnostics, using proven capacity and demand management techniques

Evolve the workforce that will drive the 18 week cardiac RTT, through collaborative working, upskilling and bridging clinical interfaces

Define clinically appropriate remits for cardiac diagnosis and treatment in primary care, and build the infrastructures that will deliver these services

Master the definition of clock starts and stops, and implement the metrics that will capture the patient journey and analyse performance accurately

Invest in cardiac risk assessment, rehab and prevention, to minimise demands upon cardiac services in the long term

Attend this conference to go beyond what the websites tell you, and harness the skills that will drive innovation, transformation and efficiency across your cardiac services
