The NSQHS Standards clearly stipulate the need for all healthcare staff to be proficient in the recognition of the deteriorating patient. In many cases, the deteriorating patient has shown signs well before they are recognised causing further disability or prolonged recovery times. Learning how to pick up on the subtle and more obvious cues and responding promptly has the potential to improve outcomes for all involved.

In this video learning activity, you will:

  • Gain an awareness of the clinical assessment of the unwell child
  • Receive information regarding the signs of deterioration
  • Gain an understanding of the steps to respond to an acute deterioration
  • Acquire knowledge of critical thinking skills involved in escalating care

This learning activity is one hour in duration. 1 hour of active learning = 1 CPD hour

You will receive a certificate after completing a short quiz to use in your professional development portfolio.
