There is pressing need to develop best & appropriate care practices for the recognition and management of deteriorating residents in care homes.
This conference focuses on delivering outstanding practice in recognising and responding to the deteriorating resident and will highlight National Developments including the recent recommendations on NEWS2 (National Early Warning Score); identifying Sepsis in your Care Home; and recognising Delirium as a sign of deterioration and underlying illness.
"Managing physical deterioration in your care home residents is crucial, knowing what to look for, what is a worrying sign in a particular individual, and when to escalate are all issues that could occur in any care home, on any day. National figures show good deterioration management reduces A&E attendances and 999 calls, as well as reduced incidence of mortality in cases of suspected sepsis, indicating that the right care was delivered at the right time by the right person to prevent further physical deterioration and save lives."

"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."
