Staff From Leeds PICU Present at International Conference

Emor Miller, Mark Winton and Ramesh Kumar represented Leeds Children’s Hospital with their poster presentations at the 9th Congress of WFPICCS in June.

“Time Out – Providing peer support and clinical learning after significant of traumatic events” summarised the Time Out model developed on PICU by Emor, Mark, Sian Cooper and Santosh Sundararajan. The Time Out team are now in the process of training facilitators to use this model in other clinical areas in the Children’s Hospital, and Mark hopes to present his qualitative research on the impact upon staff at the Paediatric Intensive Care Society Annual Scientific Meeting in Bristol later this year.

“Can we reduce cardiac arrests? YES, WE CAN – the Leeds ReCAP Initiative (Reducing Cardiac Arrests on PICU)” led by Ramesh Kumar and Khurram Mustafa focused on their 5-step quality improvement initiative which has successfully reduced the number of cardiac arrests in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.
