Improving processes for patients with TIA's in emergency departments
Enhancing the use of evidence-based care to reduce variation in clinical practice in emergency departments (EDs) is a key area of focus for the network. The ECIICN and Victorian Stoke Clinical Network (VSCN) have identified variation in clinical practice in EDs in the assessment and investigation processes of patients presenting to EDs with transient ischaemic attack (TIA).
Improving processes for patients with TIA in EDs is a quality improvement project to use the best available evidence to reduce the variability in clinical practice. This is a collaborative project between ECIICN and VSCN and was launched in the afternoon on the 16 February 2010 at the Improving evidence-based care in emergency departments forum.
More than 115 participants attended the forum and heard presentations from a range of experts on the best available evidence, practice gaps, the patient journey and project management requirements.
The outcomes of the improving processes for patients with TIA's in EDs project were presented at the morning session of the 2011 Evidence-based care in ED's forum on 22 March 2011.
A summary of project results is below.
