Deteriorating Patient Education Month Launch
Dear Emergency Department Staff,
In preparation for the March 28th launch of the new procedure ‘Recognition and Management of the Deteriorating Patient in the Emergency Department (inclusive of Adult and Paediatric)’ the Emergency Department Leadership team will be delivering a series of clinical support tools, webinars and videos to support the implementation of the procedure and to provide education relating to the recognition, escalation and response to deteriorating patients in ED.
Starting Monday the 21st of March, look out for weekly communication detailing new resources available to staff. The newly available resources come in the following forms; Western Health Guidelines, Emergency Medicine QRGs and short videos.
Each week will focus on a new education topic, presented to you by experienced speakers in videos and webinars for ED staff.
Hosted Webinars (Presentations and Q&A)
The hosted webinars will run for up to an hour every Thursday each week. Each will cover a different education topic, and involve a presentation by one or more speakers, followed by Q&A. Please feel encouraged to ask questions.
Each webinar will be open to all staff who work in ED, and recorded in case you miss it. We are scheduling the webinars in double staffing time to enable greater participation from our staff. We recommend heading outside (weather permitting!) and tuning in on your mobile device. We hope to see many of you in attendance.
- March 21st – The Deteriorating Adult Patient
