Following the May 2016 Ombudsman Report of investigations into unsafe discharge from hospital released and the 1st December 2015 NICE national guideline on the Transition between inpatient hospital settings and community or care home settings for adults with social care needs this conference focuses on improving discharge planning and practice and meeting the new recommendations in practice.

The new guideline calls for continuity of care for people being transferred from hospital...Hospitals should ensure that any pressure to make beds available does not result in unplanned and uncoordinated discharges. In addition, hospital and community teams should work together to tackle factors that could prevent a safe and timely transfer of care from hospital.
