Why attend


  • Learn from the best: this is the only international conference to bring together the world-leading experts in avoiding preventable deaths in hospital
  • Hear best practice from around the world: Rapid Response tours the world - this is a rare opportunity to see hand-picked speakers from Australia, Britain, the US, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Sri Lanka and Sierra Leone gathered in the UK
  • Benchmark your work: this will be the first opportunity to hear the conclusions of work on the international consensus on how to measure systems and know if you’re doing well
  • Consider how technology can help you: hear about state of the art technology, and its uses in recognising and responding to deteriorating patients
  • Leave with actionable strategies: explore solutions and case studies, and question speakers on how to translate their learning into your own context
  • Update your knowledge: ensure you know the latest approaches to working more coherently to recognise and respond to deteriorating patients


Themes to be discussed include:

  • The present and future of technology – examining its uses for prioritising patient needs, analysing results, and communication between staff
  • Human factors – exploring why people don’t do the right things and learning how to nudge them towards the right behaviour
  • Learning from failures
  • Psychological factors – learning how to manage the stress and impact on staff and patients
  • Specialist sessions on paediatric, maternity and cancer care
