19 October 2017, Improving Data Quality in the National Joint Registry; London

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

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 London on:
• Thursday 19 October 2017, 10am – 4pm
• Emmanuel Centre, 9-23 Marsham Street, London, SW1P 3DW

Who should attend?
The one-day educational conference is aimed specifically for non-surgical healthcare staff engaged with the National Joint Registry. The overarching theme will be on improving data quality and collection for hospital staff, for example, from pre-assessment units, theatre, data entry, patient safety and clinical governance managers.

Consultants and surgical staff are encouraged to attend the BOA’s 2017 Annual Congress which will be taking place at the ACC Liverpool from 19th – 22nd September 2017. The NJR will be presenting and exhibiting at the congress on consultant specific developments, initiatives and will be available throughout the duration of the congress to support any queries.

Regional event programme
A full programme will be released in due course, but will include sessions on key guidance, good practice examples and the latest developments from the NJR. The day will provide a unique networking opportunity for all those engaged with the NJR and involved in assuring data quality and patient safety. By attending the event, delegates will take away skills to demonstrate the highest possible standards of clinical governance that all hospitals strive to achieve.

There is also an optional ‘tutorials and demonstrations’ session between 3pm-4pm. During this time, NJR Regional Coordinator team members will be on hand to offer data entry, data quality audit instructions and any other 1:1 tutorials and demonstrations as required.

Numbers are strictly limited and pre-registration is compulsory. Anyone interested in attending is advised to book a place without delay.
