Steve Harris

Steve HarrisI am a Clinical Lecturer in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care at University College London, and a final year Specialist Registrar. I completed a Wellcome Clinical Research Training Fellowship with Professors Kathy Rowan (ICNARC), Colin Sanderson (LSHTM) and Mervyn Singer (UCL).
My thesis proposed that sepsis in particular, and critical illness in general, are time dependent processes that result in different clinical phenotypes. These phenotypes have heterogeneous responses to organ support and interventions in the ICU. My PhD was awarded in February 2014, and the study reports are currently being prepared.

Publications and Grants
His academic contributions (66 peer review publications) are in the areas of health reform, evidence-based approaches to improving hospital systems and processes, and clinical engagement, on contemporary issues related to patient safety and patient centred care. He has made significant contributions to patient safety that has had a substantial positive impact on hospitals, clinicians and communities nationally and internationally. This is best exemplified by his two publications on Rapid Response Systems in the British Medical Journal (2002 and 2007) and the Lancet (2005). Professor Buist has been a passionate and public advocate for health system quality and reform with a particular focus on patient safety. He has received a number of awards and distinctions in this area, as detailed in his CV. His academic publications have included both research studies and commentary in the leading international journals, such as the British Medical Journal, New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet, and the Medical Journal of Australia. Many of his publications and public output has focussed on how hospital systems can be improved to ensure patient safety. A particular recent publication on “What went wrong with the quality and safety agenda?”, published in the British Medical Journal in 2013, has had a substantial international impact, leading to invitations to speak in a number of national and international fora. This year these have included keynote addresses at the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Paris and Risky Business in London.

He is currently a Chief investigator on an ARC linkage grant, “Listen to me, I am really sick” (ARC LP 120100372) and a virtual Tasmanian Health Precinct Project grant on community polypharmacy. In 2014 he has the current Translational research grant application pending: NHMRC Development Grant: B0022592 Remote Electronic patient Clinical Status Monitoring and Intervention; An Australian Rural Regional Hospital Patient Safety Initiative.

Commercialization of basic research

Based on the basic research on rapid response team Professor Buist founded and directed a company called Patientrack (www. Patientrack.com) which is an electronic system of tracking and managing real time patient alerts (Australian Patent AU2004/001499): “System and process for facilitating the provision of healthcare.” These systems are now wide spread in the National Health Service in the United Kingdom.

GarySmithCalling criteria for Rapid Response Systems: early warning scores or ‘medical emergency team’ calling criteria?

Failures by staff to recognise or respond to patient deterioration have led hospitals to use ‘track and trigger’ systems to facilitate improved vital signs monitoring and the calling of expert help to a patient’s bedside. Two main types of ‘track and trigger’ systems exist – early warning scoring systems and Medical Emergency Team (MET) calling criteria. EWS are used almost universally in the UK and have been adopted in some parts of Europe. The MET calling criteria are used in preference to early warning scores in some countries, particularly the USA and Australia.

The ideal ‘track and trigger’ systems for use would have a high sensitivity (the percentage of hospitalised patients whose deterioration is corrected identified by the system) and high specificity (the percentage of hospitalised patients who are correctly identified as not deteriorating by the system). The ability to correctly determine those at risk of deterioration with the minimum workload is therefore important from the point of view of a hospital’s staffing.

This presentation will discuss the two main types of ‘track and trigger’ systems and will compare their performance.
