Welcome to the National Outreach Forum
The National Outreach Forum (NOrF) was founded back in 2004 by a group of enthusiastic professionals involved with the first Critical Care Outreach Teams. Since then it has evolved into a multi-professional interest group that seeks to promote excellence in the care of acutely unwell patients.
NOrF provides a representative forum for Critical Care Outreach, Rapid and Acute and Rapid Response teams, service providers and recipients across the country who strive to optimise the quality of care for the deteriorating and acutely ill patients, their management and experience.
IN COLLABORATION WITH THE INTENSIVE CARE SOCIETY AND THE CRITICAL CARE NATIONAL NETWORK NURSE LEADS FORUM
This multi-professional task and finish group is being established to develop a nationally recognised competency credential and career framework for registered practitioners delivering comprehensive critical care outreach (3CO), or equivalent services.
The first meeting of the group will take place on 7th March 2019. Updates of progress of the working group will be published here.
The Level 1 National Competency Framework
was launched 9th July 2018 at the Rapid Response Systems 2018 Conference in Manchester.
