Lecturer Sonja Crane conducts a study day
Caring Hearts Workshop

9:30am - Friday 6th July 2018, at Compton Care Learning and Development Centre

Providing Effective Care and Support for Cardiac Patients

  • Heart failure affects nearly a million people across the UK. It is incurable and difficult to treat, and the number of people living with it is increasing.
  • Heart failure has a poor prognosis: 30–40% of patients diagnosed with heart failure die within a year (NICE)
  • The Wolverhampton heart team sees approx. 400-500 patients per month
  • Many heart failure patients wish that they had been referred for palliative care much earlier in their illness

One of the recommendations of the 2016 All Party Parliamentary Group on Heart Disease was to improve awareness, knowledge and understanding of heart failure across clinical teams

Compton Care and The Royal Wolverhampton Trust have established The Caring Hearts project, which aims to better support those living with heart failure across Wolverhampton and South Staffordshire

Target Audience:

This workshop is open to all registered staff and will enable you to develop a greater understanding of heart failure and how best to manage a number of common symptoms (such as breathlessness and anxiety, fluid overload, pain and tiredness). We will also consider how heart failure affects patients and their carers and through the use of case studies and scenarios explore some of the main challenges which healthcare professionals often report when discussing care/options with their patients.

Cost:

Free for staff from RWNHST / Compton Care; Other staff: £40.00 (incl. all refreshments and buffet lunch)

Time:

09:30 – 16:00

Venue:

Compton Care Learning & Development Centre, The Cedars, 39 Compton Road West, Wolverhampton, WV3 9DW.
