Aim of the day:
To plan the implementation of a regional care pathway for patients with AAA in the
North West.

Attendees:
Vascular clinicians: Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Interventional Radiologists and
Vascular Nurses.

patients from the region.
Please bring your team to enable you to effectively plan your local implementation
strategy.
                                  Key Objectives:
 Review the North West’s National Vascular Database (NVD) contribution with a
view to sharing best practice across hospitals in the region.

 Reduce variation and increase the reliability of AAA care delivery by standardising
the management of patients coming to surgery.

 Identify and agree the core best practice protocols for the management of elective
AAA within the region.

Develop a multi-disciplinary care pathway with input from all clinical disciplines to
ensure patient safety and satisfaction through the pathway.

 Identify how best to work with Trusts and clinicians to implement the agreed AAA
care pathway across the region.

Programme of the Day
1.  Introduction to AAA QIP.
2.  North West’s NVD contribution and mortality data.
3.  Case study from another region.
4.  Quality Improvement and R.A.P objectives.
5.  Group Sessions
      I. ASSESSMENT: Pre-operative care bundle
      II. CARE DELIVERY: Intra-operative
      III. CARE DELIVERY: Post-operative
      IV. COMMUNICATION: Consultation with patients
      V. MEASUREMENT: Outcome, process and turn down rates
6. Working with the QIP to measure changes in the region:
        I.    Outcome measures and data capture: Mortality. LOS, complications.
        II.   Process measures: Adherence to the agreed AAA care pathway.
7. How to disseminate plans, obtain agreement and embed in practice
    (commissioners, CQUIN).
Method:
•      A local lead to guide small group discussions on each element of
       the care pathway.
•      Identification of a champion/leader to test one intervention on an
       element of the care pathway and provide feedback.
•      Pairing of units in the region to carry out interventions.
•      Discussion to examine the outputs produced, consider how they fit
       together, and agree next steps.
