About the Deteriorating Patient Webinar Series

The Covid-19 pandemic is impacting on acute hospital capacity but clinicians acknowledge that patients, who have contracted Covid-19, can experience a sudden deterioration in their physical condition. This deterioration can result in a stay in intensive care. The Scottish Patient Safety Programme has worked to reduce patient harm and mortality over the past decade. NHS Scotland Boards have told us that the care of the deteriorating patient remains a key focus for quality and improvement work.

Who is this Webinar series for?

This Webinar series is anyone working in healthcare who has an interest in improving health outcomes for people and learning more about the care of patients who experience a deterioration in their physiological condition.

What to expect from the Webinar series:

The interactive aspects of the Webinar will enable you to connect with peers, whilst providing feedback about the topics that matter to you. This is a dynamic Webinar series where the topics will change each session, to ensure that we are focusing on the most current and relevant topics in acute care.

The aims of this Webinar:

- Support clinicians to share ideas to improve outcomes for people through early recognition, escalation and response.

- Provide the opportunity to network, to share progress and discuss opportunities and challenges of Deteriorating Patient improvement work.

- Examine the wider context for successful change and generate ideas for improvement.
