SEDATT ward rounds

What are SEDATT ward rounds?

SEDATT stands for ‘Sheffield eating disorders assessment and treatment team’.

A ‘ward round’ is the name we give a meeting where we all come together as a team of:

  • psychiatrist (a mental health doctor)
  • consultant paediatrician (a medical doctor)
  • clinicians from the ward
  • mental health therapists
  • nurses from the SEDATT team

We like to talk about how things are going for you on the ward together, as a team. We would also like to hear about your views about how your admission is going. This is an opportunity for you to tell us what is working, what you would like to change and what your goals are.

We have a feedback form that you can fill in before the ward round. We know that it can be difficult talking about things in front of people you might not know, so the form might help you a bit.

Our ward rounds happen on a Monday and a Thursday and we try to have both medical and mental health trained staff at each one.

What are the benefits?

Talk about each other’s hopes and work towards goals together, and feeling involved in your care can help you to feel more in control of things.

We can getting to know you better and what support you might need when you are discharged from the hospital.

What kinds of things can I expect?

To begin with, the team will all meet together for a discussion and review your notes from the previous week.

You will then have opportunity to speak with the team and we can talk about what your goals and plans are for the week ahead.

We will also invite your family along to talk to us about any worries they may have or successes they want to celebrate.

We invite you and your family to come and speak to us together, so that we can all agree a plan for the week ahead.

What will you ask me?

Some questions we may ask you include:

  • If you take medication on the ward, we might ask you how you think this is working for you.
  • We might ask you how you are feeling. How your mood is, or if you are sleeping well.
  • We also like to talk about your meal plan and your thoughts and feelings around this.

What happens next?

We use the information we talk about during ward round to plan your care for the week ahead. We know that this can be daunting and want you to feel as involved as possible.
