    Course Description:

    This NMBI accredited one day course was designed by highly qualified and experienced healthcare professionals for nurses based on the ‘Early Warning Scoring'' (EWS) systems used today's modern hospitals: based on the maxim of 'prevention rather than cure'.   When nursing staff are equipped with the skills to detect signs of a resident's health deteriorating earlier, that can mean the difference between the resident being cared for at the home rather than their being transferred to a hospital. Meaning less disruption for the resident and for the home. Supporting the ‘Out of Hospital' strategy.
