The December 2016 Clinical Change Fora showcased 5 different change ideas.
At the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Professor Martin Dennis told the forum about his idea for an electronic diary for each patient, which could be adapted to different specialities. We heard from Dr Roger Smyth, who highlighted changes to the law following the Montgomery ruling. Finally, the forum heard from the Renal team at the RIE, who described their conservative care approach as an alternative to dialysis. At the Western General Hospital, we heard from Anne Haston and her team of stoma nurses, who described their approach to caring for stoma patients in NHS Lothian. Dr Stuart Richie followed with a description of some of the challenges in caring for patients with diabetes, and suggested some areas for improvement.
