1 Deteriorating Patient

2 AIM To enable health care professionals : To recognise the deteriorating patient To initiate appropriate interventions To initiate timely interventions

3 Objectives For participants to Understand the importance & relevance of observations and the underlying physiology Be able to recognise & interpret abnormal observations To be able to communicate effectively to the right people at the right time To feel confident in recognising & managing a deteriorating patient To facilitate teamwork within the multidisciplinary team To enable nurses, doctors & physiotherapists to develop management plans together

4 Deteriorating Patient (Recognition Intervention and Management of the Deteriorating Patient.) Monday February 4th 2013 (08.00 to 16.30) Welcome and Introduction Early Warning Score/ICU Outreach Airways/Breathing/Pain Break Circulation – Neurological assessment – Urine Output Temperature – Lunch break Scenarios- putting into practise Break Teamwork & Communication - Quiz Recap & Question Time

5 Problems encountered The aim was for the course to be interdisciplinary – Nurses attend. Only one doctor so far. I set up a team of dedicated speakers/trainers but some are not always available Particularly difficult to find trainers for the scenarios among this group. Attendees do not complete pre reading so are not as actively involved

6 Positives Good feedback from attendees High attendance numbers Instigates thought and discussion Those who start off anxious about taking part in scenarios often feel ok afterwards

7 Future plan Change format to online learning followed by attendance at 3 hour session including scenarios To encourage more active participation by attendees by necessary pre learning requirements Need less trainers per course. May be able to run more frequently
