Medical errors are common and largely preventable. In the
UK, 1 in 10 hospital admissions has some form of human error, ranging from
relatively minor incidents, to never events and death estimated to be up to
5,000 patients per year. Analysis of so called never events has found that
human factors are responsible for the majority of these mistakes. The
President’s priorities for her term include Well-Being and Workforce. A healthy
and content workforce will reduce medical mistakes. It will also add to
retention of staff.

Taking a lead from other high risk organisations including
aviation and air traffic services this conference will examine human factors
and their relevance to mistakes in an innovative and engaging way. It will
highlight the importance of looking after ourselves, interpersonal
relationships, flattening hierarchies and how to ensure adoption of a no blame
culture to give the attendee insight into the subject and to learn methods of
reducing mistakes.

Emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation, vicarious trauma,
and low sense of personal achievement are all factors which contribute to
burnout, intent to leave, ill health and workplace error, not to mention the
negative effects upon our personal and professional relationships.

Healthcare professionals increasingly reports such symptoms,
and indeed, the GMC National Training Survey 2018, noted that 1 in 4 trainees,
and 1 in 5 medical trainers reported features of burnout.

’Making Life Work Better’ aims to be an impactful and
entertaining one day conference, which addresses areas where we can all make a
difference to our own health and wellbeing in the workplace, and that of our
colleagues.

It shall build upon the success of our 2018 event, with a
focus on how fostering a ‘well’ workplace culture, has a direct effect on
patient safety and quality of care.

It promises to be an impactful programme which leaves
attendees inspired to make changes within their own organisations.

Cardiac symptoms including breathlessness, chest
pain, syncope and palpitation are amongst the commonest presentations seen in
clinical practice. Despite the advances in investigations to detect the absence
or presence of cardiac disease, understanding the relationship between symptoms
and cause remains a challenge.

Cardiology has evolved at a remarkable and exciting
pace over the last three decades, but for jobbing Physicians as well as
Cardiologists the accurate diagnosis of symptoms that require further
investigation with a view for potentially lifelong as well as expensive
treatments is central to successful management.

In this symposium we discuss the common presentations, areas where the evidence
and practice may differ, difficult clinical scenarios as well as communicating
and learning from patients. Our keynote speaker will talk about speaking to
patients, our clinicians will speak about diagnosis and our academics will
speak about evidence.

The symposium is aimed at students, doctors in training, GPs, general
physicians and cardiologists. We hope that the audience will find all sessions
of interest and thought-provoking, and that the programme will stimulate
discussion even beyond the day of the symposium.
