Heatwaves and health - from impact to harm prevention
Venue:State Library of Victoria, Village Roadshow Theatrette, 179 La Trobe Street, Melbourne
Episodes of extreme heat, also known as heatwaves, are an important public health issue because they cause death and illness and are very likely to become more frequent and more severe in the future. Heatwaves have the greatest impact on the health of those who are least able to care for themselves, including older people, particularly those who are frail, already ill and socially isolated. It is known that many heatwave-related deaths are preventable, supporting the importance of heatwave preparedness measures.
Session 1: The impact of heatwaves on public health
Session 2: Heatwaves and the individual
Session 3: Preparing for next summer
Safety and Quality: getting it done without doing all
Venue: The AMREP Seminar Room, The Alfred, Commercial Road, PRAHRAN
Reviewing in-hospital mortality
Venue: Ella Latham Lecture Theatre,Royal Children's Hospital,Parkville Vic 3010.
Review of in-hospital deaths is an integral part of good clinical practice. Audit provides the opportunity to learn about and improve practices and processes of care. Despite widespread recognition of its importance, there remains no ‘gold standard' approach to conducting mortality review. In this seminar we will hear a range of views about how to undertake an effective mortality review. Importantly, a range of leaders from both acute health and forensic medicine will discuss how they use information derived from these reviews to improve practice and processes of care.
Session 1: Policy, international perspective
Session 2: Methods for doing review
Session 3: What data should we use?
Session 4: Hospital review and discussion
