Deteriorating Patient (Children)

Research shows that failure to recognise and treat patients whose condition is deteriorating is a cause of significant unintended harm in healthcare environments. Our programme “Deteriorating Patient (Children)” encompasses the six core elements of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health safe practice framework:

  1. Partnership working with patients and families by exploring culture, Human Factors and exploring barriers to building good relationships
  2. Recognising deterioration– spotting physiological deviations before significant changes in care are needed or harm occurs.
  3. Responding to deterioration– Ensuring a timely and appropriate response from all involved in the child’s care
  4. Open and consistent learning– Exploring the role of system errors and individual responsibility, to learn and effect change & continual improvements in practice
  5. Education and training– Building clinical knowledge and confidence, as well as patient safety through demonstrations and scenario based sessions.

At present this programme is provided on a virtual platform and requires you to have a camera and microphone access to facilitate simulation.  The programme is suitable for Registered Nurses, Paramedics and Therapeutic Radiographers.
