Inquiry into Hyponatraemia-Related Deaths – latest update
The progress report details how working groups are addressing key areas including Duty of Candour, and education training. A number of the inquiry recommendations are complex and require considerable research, consultation and reflection. A number also require legislation, which will require a Minister of Health in place, as well as a legislature to pass the legislation.
The next update will be in mid-October when it is hoped there will be the beginning of a steady of circulars being issues within the health services detailing how individual recommendations should be implanted.
The progress report refers to the event, Transforming Health Through Openness and Candour, hosted by NICVA last week. A short report on that event will be available on the NICVA website within the next week.
What is the Hyponatraemia Implementation Programme?
The Hyponatraemia Implementation Programme is comprised of nine workstreams and 200 people from different programmes working through the recommendations arising from the Inquiry into Hyponatraemia-Related Deaths (IHRD).
