This PD event will feature two papers from Elizabeth Austin and Dr Jolene Cox.

Paper #1 Validating an emergency department work domain analysis across three hospital configurations

This paper presents the process and findings of validating a work domain analysis model of the Emergency Department system across three hospitals of different size and services. Conceptually, it asks the question, are all EDs fundamentally the same? Methodologically, it asks the question, how do you conduct research in a highly dynamic, busy environment with time-poor participants? While EDs differ in their resources, their underlying system is the same. Having a blue-print of the ED system provides the opportunity to explore, in a data-informed way, system improvements that result in better care for patients and staff, whilst maintaining compliance with regulatory requirements. The blue-print provides the opportunity to share and customise innovations across EDs in a way that has not been done before.
