Models of Emergency Care

This is an interactive module looking at the latest changes in how emergency care is delivered; it has been designed to give students a whole systems view of the interaction between various care providers involved in emergency care; the aim is to enable a deeper understanding about the complexities of organising and re-organising emergency health care systems and the principles underpinning this; the module also addresses the issues of reconfiguring emergency care, including the varying viewpoints behind A&E closures; the module leader was 1 of the authors of the government strategy 'Reforming Emergency Care' and has since been the clinical lead for much of its implementation; the module is ideally suited for all staff working in emergency care, but is particularly suited to those involved in the debates about redesigning services, reconfiguration and future models of care.
