This National Conference focuses on improving the investigation and learning from deaths in NHS Trusts. By collecting the data and taking action in response to failings in care, trusts will be able to give an open and honest account of the circumstances leading to a death. There will be an extended focus on engaging and involving patients, families and staff following a death, and on learning from deaths including an update from a coroner.

From April 2023, all deaths in the community or acute settings that do not require to be referred to the coroner (non-coronial deaths) will be scrutinised by a medical examiner.

The conference will discuss the role of Medical Examiners in learning from deaths which is now being extended to all non-coronial deaths wherever they occur. The conference will also include a split stream where delegates can chose to focus on investigating and learning from either deaths in acute care, or deaths in primary and community care.

The conference will also update delegates on the New National Patient Safety Incident Response Framework which was published on 16th August 2022 and the implications for serious incident investigation and learning from deaths.
