Dean's Grand Rounds

What is a Grand Round? 

  • A Faculty will pair up with a Division or Devolved Nation to examine a question relevant to their area, and deliver a free webinar 
  • The session will start with a problem/question/opportunity for change (this could be presented through a patient story) and followed by evidence and current practice
  • The webinar will discuss how we bridge that evidence-practice gap using a quality improvement approach
  • Trainees come forward and present in the Grand Rounds on behalf of their division/faculty and lead a change project focusing on this problem

Aims

The Grand Rounds aim to:

  • narrow the gap between education and practice
  • empower clinicians to explore datasets that inform the impact of the evidence-practice gap on their communities of practice
  • embed lived experience in clinical education
  • learn how QI methodologies can be used to narrow gap between evidence and practice.

Each webinar will feature a person or community organisation (named individual) with lived experience; Academic or Clinician presenting evidence; Medical Manager- CD/MD/Public Health professional presenting contextual data and ensuring that attendees are signposted to appropriate datasets; and, QI Lead who will help in adopting a systematic QI approach to addressing this problem and offer QI support for a maximum of six months.

First webinar - 16 June

The first webinar in our series of free #DeansGrandRounds webinars is titled 'Improving the management of alcohol dependence for patients admitted to Mental Health Inpatient Units' and will be taking place on Thursday 16 June 2022 from 4 - 5:30pm. If you can't join us live you can watch the recording later.

The Faculty of Addictions Psychiatry and the West Midlands Division have teamed up to examine the loss of addiction expertise in psychiatry. The issue is particularly timely as the requirement of the new GMC curriculum (starting August 2022) is for all CT1-3 trainees to demonstrate competence in the assessment and management of addiction.

The webinar will explore the project in detail and include a presentation of PoMH data from 14 a,b,c) management of alcohol withdrawal in IP units and trends since 2014. An overview of local data sets will also be presented.

Speakers include: Professor Subodh Dave, Dr Julia Sinclair, Dr Ed Day, Dr Zafar Iqbal, Dr Muhammad Gul, Dr Alina Braicu, Dr Deepa Bagepalli Krishnan, and Dr Abdul Raoof.
