Acute Aortic Dissection Toolkit

 

We would like to invite your feedback on a toolkit that is being developed to support improvements in the management of Acute (Emergency) Aortic Dissection pathways. The toolkit has been developed by NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEI) and includes key principles and practical steps to help clinical services and commissioners within regions address variations in care.

The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust has been involved in the development of the toolkit. We now wish to gain wider feedback and as a supporter of the charity, we would like to hear your views before the toolkit that is being considered further by NHSEI. We will be feeding your comments back to NHS England. 

 

Why the toolkit is being developed?

Dissection requires rapid diagnosis and management to prevent death. There is additional complexity because patients are often admitted under a variety of specialities because of initial misdiagnosis. Regional pathways for patients with acute aortic dissection are often unclear.

This toolkit describes seven key principles and actions to improve care for emergency acute aortic dissection patients. The aim is to provide a toolkit that is both engaging and useful – to effectively meet the needs of both the clinicians and commissioners, and ultimately improve patient care and outcomes.

What are we asking you to do?

There are two separate documents. One is the full toolkit and the other is a summary document highlighting the key principles within the toolkit. We would like to hear your views on both of these documents.

The Impact Assessment is a document that accompanies all NHSEI commissioning products. You may wish to consider this too.

Please review the proposed documents and give your feedback to the questions in this survey. You are welcome to respond on behalf of a group or organisation, or as an individual. You may want to consult others as part of your response. Your response will be shared with NHS England.

The last day for feedback is Friday 3rd December 2021

Webinar recording explaining the toolkit

You are welcome to watch this further explanation of the toolkit before submitting your feedback.

What happens next?

Once NHSEI has reviewed all stakeholder feedback, the toolkit will be revised before a final version of both documents is agreed upon and made available to clinicians and commissioners.

 

Thank you very much for your input.
