Afternoon Board Round
Invergordon Community Hospital also recently introduced a twice-weekly multidisciplinary board round at 3pm. The team meets to discuss all patients on the ward and highlight any safety and discharge planning issues. Meetings are attended by GPs, pharmacists, Occupational Therapists and members of the wider team to facilitate joined-up discussion and planning. Julie is considering asking different members of the team to lead the meeting on different days:
"At the moment the meetings are nurse-led. We would like there to be a greater sense of ownership amongst the wider multidisciplinary team so I am considering inviting different members of the team to lead the meetings on different days. We receive regular support from Kate Patience Quate who is leading the process and she helps us to resolve any problems that we experience."
