NJR regional events

We are always pleased to invite all staff in both NHS and independent sector hospitals to attend the NJR annual programme of free-to-attend regional events.

By attending an NJR event, delegates will take away skills to demonstrate the highest possible standards of clinical governance that all hospitals strive to achieve. All staff involved with the NJR process in your hospitals are welcome including: data entry, pre-assessment, theatre, clinical governance staff, surgeons, managers and nurses.

Because the NJR is a national mandatory audit, time to attend can be requested from your line-manager to support your attendance, as part of ongoing continuing professional development training and we provide formal attendance certificates for all delegates. The programme presents a unique networking opportunity for all those engaged with the NJR and involved in assuring data quality and patient safety.

We will soon advise our plans for 2024.

Prehabilitation: Principles & Practice for Supporting Patients to Get Fit for Surgery/Treatment

This conference focuses on Prehabilitation – Principles and Practice, and will provide a practical guide to delivering an effective prehabilitation programme, ensuring patients are fit and optimised for surgery/treatment. This is even more important in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns which have had a negative effect on many individual’s health and fitness levels, and currently high waiting lists could be used as preparation time to ensure the best outcomes.

Day Case Knee Arthroplasty – BADS conference

A Joint British Association of Day Surgery & HCUK Virtual Conference
Elective recovery still remains a significant focus of the NHS. Although progress has been made on long waits, waiting list numbers remain at record highs and in response The Elective Recovery Taskforce has been set up to help tackle this further. It is clear we must work differently to respond to these unprecedented waits and Day Case surgery offers us a way to help increase efficiencies and make an impact on these waiting times.

Join us to see how units across the UK have been leading the journey to successful Day case arthroplasty. It has been proven to be safe, achievable and has been replicated across several trusts. Learn how to embark on your day case journey and also see how Elective hubs can increase day case numbers further. You will also see how digital technology can aid this and move us towards a more virtual way of working.
