Highlights of the NJR Annual Event for hospital staff: Data access, the patient perspective and changing clinical practice

19 October 2012

The NJR was pleased to see over 60 delegates, who joined a host of NJR speakers and team members, at its annual event for hospital staff on Friday 12 October 2012. The event was held at the Postgraduate Multidisciplinary Education Centre, Queens Medical Campus, Nottingham.

The event, which had a strong educational and learning focus, was attended by hospital staff involved in the NJR process including administrators, data clerks, managers, nurses and surgeons. Overall, 90% of those who filled in their evaluation forms were very happy with the programme on the day and found the following aspects particularly useful:

  • Understanding how to access data and information on accessing reports online
  • Broader understanding of NJR and its importance
  • Meeting people from different hospitals/areas and how they collect their data
  • Listening to the consultants applying NJR statistics to their clinical practice
  • Patient perspective, getting an insight to the patient point of view

Presentations from the event included:

NJR progress & developments >Elaine Young, National Lead for the NJR, HQI
NJR 9th Annual Report & the importance of good quality data >Peter Howard, Orthopaedic Consultant, Royal Derby Hospital and NJR Regional Clinical Coordinator
Outcomes from NJR knee arthroplasty data >Colin Esler, Orthopaedic Consultant, Leicester General Hospital and NJR Regional Clinical Coordinator
Patient perspective >Sue Musson, Patient Representative, NJR Steering Committee
