The final SpR Case Study MDT Grand Rounds Meeting was held on Friday, 25th November at The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute. Building on an educational programme the HCI initiated a few years ago, these meetings target SpR’s in the fields of Cardiovascular, Renal, and Endocrine medicine, also now extending this to include SpR’s in Primary Care & secondary care.
With this new format, SpR’s were encouraged to submit case studies which they felt were interesting, challenging, and relevant to the 3 specialties which were then be assessed by a joint panel of Consultants and SpR’s who selected those for presentation at the meeting. The goal was to stimulate discussion and problem-solving within multi-disciplinary working.
In this final meeting of 2023, we also included Senior Consultants who presented a case report which they used to query the SpR audience for treatment direction. This approach resulted in active and engaging discussions between all, Senior and Junior Specialists, and demonstrated the benefit of MDT learning across these disciplines.
The HCI will begin working on new meetings for 2023, details to follow soon.
