Spring Forum 1/5: GIRFT 2020 into Practice – Inpatient Care

Recording Spring Forum Episode 1

More Info

Summary

The second DPC Forum session on the GIRFT 2020 report will focus on the second of three key recommendations: Diabetes Inpatient Care. Over 90 per cent of people with diabetes in hospital are admitted for non-diabetes related conditions such as pneumonia, fractures and elective surgical procedures. They are treated by staff across various surgical and medical disciplines, who may not be experienced in diabetes care. This DPC Forum session will focus on how all healthcare professionals, trust management and clinical leads can ensure that people living with diabetes are treated appropriately whilst in hospital and that revisits are minimised.

Learning Outcomes

  • Who is it for?
  • How are the reports compiled?
  • What are the key topics of the GIRFT 2020 Report?

    • Panel Discussion: What can we do to make improvements
    • Understanding the cost saving and financial opportunity - how savings in particular areas can support the need for increased spend in other areas highlighted within the report.

Summer Forum part 2 (6/7)Nothing about us without us – How to keep the patients at the heart of everything we do.

SF2 S6

More Info

Five principles have been recognised as part of the next phase of the COVID-19 response- Nothing about us without us. One of these key principles is Make everyone matter, leave no-one behind.

Healthcare systems focus on achieving measurable targets such as blood pressure, total cholesterol, HbA1c and albumin creatinine ratio. These figures however mean little to a person living with diabetes, who are more concerned about the risk retinopathy, amputation and heart failure.

This joint session with people living with diabetes, patient advocates and healthcare practitioners will focus on agreeing personal goals and how these may be achieved

More Info

When considering the management of diabetes, it is important to recognise that the person living with diabetes is living with a complex long-term condition involving monitoring diet, reviewing exercise targets and ensuring adherence to multiple medications on a daily basis. A focus on achieving glycaemic, blood pressure and lipid targets has the potential to lose the person at the centre, replacing them with a “patient” and targets.

More Info

Hyperkalaemia is a common diagnosis. Fortunately, most patients who are diagnosed have mild hyperkalemia (which is usually well tolerated). However, any condition causing even mild hyperkalemia should be treated to prevent progression into more severe hyperkalemia. Many drugs commonly used in diabetes as well as the associated impaired renal function that often accompanies predispose towards elevated potassium.
