Joining up and supporting care
Information sharing in Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs)
A MDT is a group of health and care staff from different organisations and professions that together make decisions regarding the treatment of individual patients and service users. There are some IG considerations when working as part of an MDT.
Virtual wards support people, who would otherwise be in hospital, to receive the care and treatment they need in their own home or usual place of residence. Virtual wards are suitable for a range of conditions that can be safely and effectively monitored at home including respiratory conditions, heart failure and COVID-19.
