RCP National Mortality Review Training

23 October 2017 Birmingham TBC

The contract for the National Mortality Case Record Review Programme (NMCRR) was awarded to the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in 2016 with the aim of establishing and rolling out a standardised methodology and process for retrospective case record review for adult acute care deaths in England and Scotland to improve understanding and learning about problems in care that may have contributed to a patient’s death. 

To support this, the NMCRR programme team will deliver 15 training sessions during August 2017 – January 2018 throughout England, including a session in Birmingham on 23 October. These sessions follow on from a number already held over the past year and will train Tier One Trainers who will sit regionally as a resource for trusts to access to train in-hospital reviewers. A list of Tier One Trainers will be made available to trusts wishing to arrange SJR training.

Attendees will be trained on how to conduct mortality reviews using the Structured Judgement Review methodology and tool, be informed of the background of the programme, how to make explicit judgements, given case studies to test skills, and the chance to ask any questions about the programme. This session will also train attendees to become Tier One Trainers with the ability to cascade training to colleagues wanting to become reviewers. There will be an expectation that as a Tier One Trainer your contact details will be made available to local Trusts who will contact you to deliver training sessions in your region.

You will receive support from the NMCRR core programme team to deliver your training sessions  Two colleagues from each trust are welcome to attend the NMCRR training. If you are interested in attending, please email robert.everett@rcplondon.ac.uk or daniel.campos@rcplondon.ac.uk.
