BACCN Twitter Chat - October #RandR

Following our summer hiatus we were happy to recommence our regular Twitter Chat's with our first of this new cycle of twitter chats discussing Rapid Response Systems #RandR.

Rapid Response Systems have been in place in one form or the other in the UK for nearly 20 years now. Many organisations such as NICE and NCEPOD have repeatedly called for / recommended Critical Care Outreach services to be available 24/7. Despite this in the recent NCEPOD report "Inspiring Change" it was noted that only 49% of those that took part offered a 24/7 service within their organisation. It was interesting to note how varying the services is that's being provided across the various teams and I guess there-in lies the problem with regards to research in the efficacy of Rapid Response Systems such as Critical Care Outreach ect.

I want to thank all those that participated in the twitter chat as it's only by sharing our varying experiences we can learn from each other and move forward. There's various forums where we can continue to share and discuss our views and opinions such as the forthcoming iRRS / NoRF conference, and of course the #BACCNConf2018 that will be taking place in Bournemouth. I would urge you to participate and share your work in order for us all to learn and thereby improve services we provide to the wider critical care community across the NHS to the benefit of all deteriorating patients and their families.

Below is the usual storify version of the twitter chat, that you can use for revalidation purposes.


Please join us next month on the 7th of November when we'll be discussing "Sepsis in ICU" #icusepsis.

Thank you for participating and lets keep the conversation going...
