Urgent Care Webinar

Through user groups and training sessions the Scenario Generator team noticed that lots of healthcare users of Scenario Generator were modeling alternative solutions to managing urgent care.

Due to this common interest in a particular modeling theme, last week SIMUL8 held a webinar for interested users. The session examined the most recent research evidence for what works in urgent care pathways. It also provided examples of how the scenarios discussed in the evidence could be modeled using simulation to show the impact of such changes.

The feedback from this session was very encouraging.  David Gilding from NHS Nottinghamshire County said:

 “Still reeling a bit about the scope of what you covered and the details in terms of how they were modeled. As always – I am impressed by how high level modeling questions are turned into scenarios; you make it look easy!”

We are really pleased that users found the session worthwhile and following this we are planning on arranging more discussions. Our thoughts for the next Webinar is to discuss the issues surrounding Long Term Conditions and the modeling implications of this.

Please let us know if you are interested or have other suggestions for topics that would be useful to you.

The webinar presentation can be found on the User Forum and the models  are up on the User Pathway section of the Scenario Generator website www.scenario-generator.com
