About the Workshop


A proactive patient-centred care team can optimize hospital outcomes. Designed and managed properly, hospital units can engage, support, and sustain these high functioning patient-centred teams. This workshop will provide a practical overview of the convergent structure, process, management, training, and system features that improve the outcomes for hospitalised patients and the frontline professionals who care for them. The course will draw directly upon the experiences of launching and developing Accountable Care Units (ACUs) with Structured Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds (SIBR) at Emory University Hospital, Atlanta and beyond.



The ACU-SIBR model has been implemented in multiple hospital systems in the U.S. and Australia and has also been included in the project portfolio of the US Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation Center.
