The National Joint Registry is calling all staff in both the NHS and independent sector alike who are involved with the NJR – for example, from pre-assessment units, theatre, data entry, surgeons, and clinical governance managers – to the next meeting in its programme of regional events: Improving Data Quality in the National Joint Registry.

As the NJR is a national mandatory audit, time can be requested from your managers to support your attendance as part of ongoing professional development training.

The free-to-attend event will take place in Newcastle on:

  • St James’ Park, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 4ST

The NJR’s regional events are designed to help colleagues:

  • Receive guidance on how you can access surgeon or hospital data, better engage with the annual data quality audit, and with Clinician Feedback process for surgeons;
  • Share good practice around NJR consent and data-entry processes with your neighbouring colleagues;
  • Feedback to the NJR about the Data Quality Audit, including how it has worked in your hospital and helped to enhance data entry processes
  • Learn about the latest and future developments in the NJR;
  • Pick up handy hints and tips to take away;

The one-day programme also provides unrivalled networking opportunities for surgeons, hospital managers and informatics staff alike, as well nurses, pre-operative staff and all those involved in assuring data quality and patient safety.

Event speakers include: Elaine Young (NJR Director of Operations), Mr Matthew Porteous (NJR Regional Clinical Coordinators Network Chairman), Gillian Coward and Sue Musson (NJR Steering Committee’s Patient Representatives).
