The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) have recommended that physiological track and trigger systems should be used to monitor all adult patients in acute hospital settings
The course aims to optimise the outcome for patients at risk of developing acute illness by enhancing the knowledge, confidence and performance of staff in dealing with acutely ill adults. The course is to encourage teamwork, communication, promotion of the multi-disciplinary approach to patient care and address clinical governance and risk.
The prospect of caring for acutely ill patients has the potential to overwhelm students and newly qualified health professionals, with many reporting feelings of stress, fear and inexperience. In this context, Acute Illness Management arrives as an important and much needed text covering the fundamental aspects of care in the hospital setting.
This book is designed to address the student’s needs by equipping them with a practical understanding of the essential skills ranging from resuscitation to early intervention and to trauma care. It explains the rationale behind the key protocols of care highlighting the relationship between theory and practice.
Key features include:
-Up-to-date legal and ethical content.
-Tips for analysing care decisions in a critical and effective manner, and
-Reflective activities and self-assessment questions to cement learning.
Acute Illness Management is an invaluable resource for students and qualified practitioners in nursing and other health professions.
