Care of the Deteriorating Patient

This innovative course has been designed to assist clinicians achieve the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care NSQHS Standard 9 – Recognising and Responding to Clinical Deterioration.

Participants will be provided with essential skills relating to the assessment and management of patients who are experiencing clinical deterioration or have the potential to do so.

For each area of clinical deterioration, the session will commence with a review of the essential physiology and then relate that to the pathophysiological changes which lead to the development of altered signs & symptoms.

Following this review, specific clinical management strategies based on a problem solving case history approach will be developed with the aim of stabilising the patient and preventing or reversing their clinical deterioration.

As the emphasis in this two day course is on the physiological deterioration, the course is applicable to all patients in acute care situations and to all acute healthcare facilities and clinical practice.

This course is specifically designed to facilitate the application of a problem solving approach to the assessment and management of a wide variety of patient conditions. In doing so, the aim is to improve patient safety and outcomes.

This course will emphasise not just the observation of the patient but also the interpretation of those observations and options for escalating response to further prevent or reverse the clinical deterioration of the patient.
