Stroke aftercare requires careful management to minimise the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) with many patients being managed using intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) or pharmaceutical intervention. Research shows that around a third of these stroke patients are contraindicated, leaving few preventative measures against VTEs in this patient subset.

BOB Talks about...digital consent

Hear how digital leaders have introduced a digital patient consent tool into their organisations...

Patient consent to treatment remains a paper process across much of the country - often using carbon-copy blank forms. It's long been a frustrating process for all, increasingly shown to be linked to significant clinical errors, and is hampering patients and clinicians from reaching informed, shared decisions.

In this free webinar hosted by BOB.health, Austin Gibbs, Cardiologist, and Angela Hall, Arrhythmia Nurse Specialist - both from Jersey General Hospital - share their accounts of rolling out an innovative digital consent application in their organisation.

Speakers
  • Austin Gibbs, Cardiologist and Lab Director, The Allan Lab, Jersey General Hospital
  • Angela Hall, Arrhythmia Nurse Specialist, Jersey General Hospital 

BOB Talks are for NHS and social care staff only, if you are unable to register, but believe you should be permitted access to the webinar, please contact bobsquad@bob.health with your name, job role, organisation and reason for requesting access. We will review all requests on a case-by-case basis.

Equality and diversity: Taking an anti-racist stance in your day-to-day


Over 900 NHS and social care staff registered for our recent event around how being anti-racist can improve staff and patient experience.

Following the BOB Talk, 83% of attendees said they felt more equipped to implement change within their organisation. The full, subtitled recording is now available to watch, it can be accessed via Dr Obaro's case study on BOB - "Why I want to talk about racism", click below for access.

🎬 Watch the session and read the full case study here (You can find the webinar recording at the end of the 'Impact story overview')
✅ 1 CPD point - certificate issued on request

Speakers:
  • Dr Anu Obaro, Radiologist Research Fellow, St Mark's Hospital, London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Dr Julie Carlisle, Lead Consultant Clinical Psychologist at Rowan View Medium Secure Unit, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust
  • Dipen Rajyaguru, Head of Equality and Diversity at South Central Ambulance Service
Given the high levels of interest in this story, with Dr Obaro's permission, we have built a microsite for non-NHS and social care staff to access and learn from - you can access this here. To watch the on-demand recording of the above webinar, head to the 'Useful Materials' section at the end of the case study. Please keep in mind this is a 'pop-up' and isn't the full BOB platform experience - but it does, we hope help to make a difference. 


All good ideas deserve to be shared, so we'd love for you to share these webinars with your networks. Feel free to pop the images in this blog in any social posts and emails.
