New Recognising and Managing Deterioration e-learning programme launched

Posted on: December 4th, 2020 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with London South Bank University and Bournemouth University, to develop a new, free e-learning programme to support health and social care professionals working in clinical environments where patients could physically deteriorate.

The Recognising and Managing Deterioration programme is an e-learning resource offered at two levels, universal and advanced, to reflect the participant’s experience and clinical setting. This resource is structured around the ABCDE assessment tool and allows participants to revise their anatomy and physiology, develop their skills and knowledge in the assessment process to recognise deterioration and manage the findings within the scope of their clinical role.

Changes to vital signs, behaviour and mental state often occur before a serious event, such as cardiac arrest. Being able to recognise and act on these changes are essential skills to improving patient safety and outcomes. A range of resources are available in this e-learning programme to support the workforce and organisations in ensuring staff have the necessary knowledge and skills to recognise and manage deterioration in adult patients.

How to access the e-learning
The Recognising and Managing Deterioration e-learning programme is available to the health and care workforce via the e-Learning for Healthcare Hub.

You can learn more about the e-learning resources on the Recognising and Managing Deterioration programme page.
