Need

There is a significant potential for patients across any clinical setting to rapidly become unwell. The ability to recognise and interpret clinical cues and implement timely appropriate, evidence-based interventions, has a significant positive impact on patient outcomes. Education is essential if health professionals are to maintain knowledge and confidence of how to identify, assess and prevent clinical deterioration.

Purpose

The purpose of this Course is to provide health professionals with education relating to respiratory deterioration in order to assist in the prevention of disability and premature death.

Learning Outcomes

  • Relate pathophysiology principles that occur in acutely ill patients to prioritise assessment in a patient who is deteriorating.
  • Apply a range of appropriate and timely evidence-based interventions for a person who is acutely ill and whose condition is deteriorating.
  • Recognise and respond to early signs of respiratory failure by implementing evidence-based interventions, thereby improving patient outcomes.

Target Audience

Registered nurses and other health professionals will gain confidence from undertaking this Course, given the prevalence of and harm associated with respiratory deterioration.

It was a bit text book like. Some clinical examples would help with remembering the different types of respiratory disorders discussed in this learning tool.
