9. Emma’s ward round – activity
This activity is designed to help you consider Emma's case study. Using the agenda from the first exercise, consider who should be present for Emma’s ward round. Make sure all agenda items are covered, but also, keep an eye on the ‘Stress Thermometer'. This will have an impact on the patient’s experience of the meeting and ultimately the benefit they get from it. Drag and drop the most suited icons into the meeting room area, to help meet the requirements of Emma's agenda.
