To ensure the highest quality of clinical care for patients attending Emergency Departments in the UK, the Clinical Effectiveness Committee (CEC) of the College of Emergency Medicine (CEM) needs to adopt an implementation framework that not only reflects the CECís role in promoting clinical effectiveness, but also the CEMís role as an effective partner in the collaborative leadership of academic medical royal colleges to support and promote integrated evidence-based care with its stakeholders and partner organisations.
For the purposes of ensuring clinical effectiveness at every level, ranging from national policy-making to local implementation, the following framework is proposed. This draws upon relevant national policies and the international literature regarding knowledge translation and clinical effectiveness. The aim is to develop and establish an emergency care system that benefits from active participation of the CEC. Crucial to this is the development of social and collaborative networks to facilitate the formulation and uptake of policies and strategies. Many of these activities are already underway.
As part of the College's work on implementation. a strategy for disseminating information to Fellows and Members has been published (Nov 2010).
