The Acute Clinical Deterioration online course is a 3 hour webinar based professional programme focusing upon the recognition and response to the clinically deteriorating adult in the hospital setting. The course utilises a mixture of presentations, workshops, and case study clinical scenarios to apply knowledge and skills using a structured ABCDE approach to the assessment and management of clinical deterioration. This approach to learning facilitates understanding of the core physiological changes linked to clinical deterioration, the need for rapid intervention, teamwork, communication and collaboration across professional groups.

  • Course Learning Outcomes

    1. Improve outcomes for hospital patients at risk of clinical deterioration

  • Testimonials

    "Great presentation.....would nearly tempt me to do a longer course. Really perfect for my needs ....I have promoted it with my colleagues"

    "The depth of the pathophysiology was just right and very relevant to a true clinical scenario."

    "The whole thing was absolutely fantastic. So easy to listen to and understand. Loved the case studies. The 3 hours went so fast, it was a great webinar having never done one before, thank you."

    "The presenter was knowledgeable and really good to listen to. He managed to be interactive without visible students which I thought was very impressive! The course flowed well and he didn't dwell on particular slides for too long. He talked about the slide instead of just reading it which, unfortunately, is what I've come to expect from many lecturers. Would definitely recommend."

    "This course allowed me to consolidate prior knowledge while also providing me with more information and confidence."
