Congratulations to my colleague Dr Martin Wiese for winning an award in recognition of his work in establishing our Emergency Department’s new Chest Pain / NSTEMI pathway.
Martin has a passion for creating evidence-based protocols and pathways. His work is recognised at a national level, and he has worked with both the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and the College of Emergency Medicine on a number of clinical guidelines.
Martin has helped keep our Emergency Department at the leading edge of Emergency Medicine by producing and implementing a Chest Pain / NSTEMI pathway that not only incorporates the latest ultra-high sensitive Troponin assays (allowing NSTEMI biochemical rule-out at 3 hours, which is great for both patients and the hospital), but also incorporating a whole package of investigations and treatments including GRACE scoring and the latest coronary artery calcium CT scoring techniques.
Please watch the video above, or read this press release for more information.
"Martin has substantially re-organised the way emergency patients with chest pain are managed, making sure they see the right people at the right time during their visit to the Emergency Department. This newly developed system is successful thanks to doctors, nurses and clinicians who have put in both time and dedication and work together to provide high quality patient care."
