MagiQ Collaboration


The LTRC has a very close relationship with magiQ and both groups firmly believe that close rapports between specialties are integral to improving patient care. There are surgical representatives at magiQ meetings and both groups have worked on a couple of QI projects. The following link will take you to the magiQ website for more information:

Mersey MagiQ

MELCMerseyside Emergency Laparotomy Collaboration Project

This project is an ongoing project trying to promote better care through a number of measures, most notably the NELA phone application and team working assessment tools. Click the title link to get more information and instructions on how to download the application.

Laparotomy Team Working Evaluation Tool

A Royal College of Surgeons Likert tool was used assess laparotomy team working behaviour at an institution in Liverpool. The project yielded divergent results depending on the specialty of the team answering the questionnaire. Further work is needed to implement a more organised approach at other institutions but the initial findings were presented at WSM 2018 in London.
