The MCN Clinical Steering Group met on Thursday 1 May 2014. The group discussed the Specialist at all Times Model, which is to be continued into 2014/2015. Since the launch date of the 1 October 2013 there have been 18 calls taken which have been invaluable to the EACH TCT Nurse Specialists. The aim of the model is to ensure that appropriate and timely specialist children's palliative care advice is available to the EACH TCT team outside of office hours. These are 18.00hrs to 08.00hrs Monday to Friday and 24 hours over weekends and bank holidays.
Also discussed was the Education and Training strategy, for 2014. (please see our Education
section for further details.) There were updates on the Resuscitation Plan - formerly Emergency Health Care Plan, which has been approved by the Strategic Clinical Network. They are starting to cascade this.
