On Monday April 19th at 17:00 – 18:00 CET an Endo-ERN webinar about “Development and integration of VBHC in pituitary care in an Endo-ERN reference center” is organised. The webinar will be held by Nienke Biermasz and Friso de Vries from Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands.
From 2016 onwards our team embraced a VBHC approach in pituitary care. In our multidisciplinary unit we enforced multidisciplinary working by combination clinics, shared specialist nurses covering perioperative care, a shared weekly clinical meeting, PDCA cycles and combined research projects and a multidisciplinary care path. Also Capital, a multidisciplinary workshop for pituitary specialists and nurses was introduced and three successful meetings with teams and a lot of sharing experiences were organized before the Covid-19 era.
Several projects were conducted: short track admissions for surgery combined with ehealth, introduction of functional imaging, a trial to compare surgery and medical treatment in prolactinoma, and advanced outcome measurements including patient reported and clinical outcome measurements. In this webinar we discuss the process of development of this unit which is of course work in progress. We are proud to be nominated for the value based health care prize 2021, as an example of VBHC in a rare and complex disease area.
