    Course Description:

    CHEWS is an educational paradigm based on the ‘Early Warning Scoring'' (EWS) systems used in modern hospitals. It is centred on the maxim of 'prevention rather than cure'. Leading Healthcare Providers Skillnet offers two kinds of CHEWS courses: one tailored to Nurses and one tailored to Healthcare Assistants. In either case, the CHEWS course aims to deliver ‘front line' training, encouraging healthcare professionals in their role to be more observant, improving their skills in spotting a sick or deteriorating resident and teaching the importance of proactive and harmonious communication with other team members.

    When nursing staff are equipped with the skills to detect signs of a resident's health deteriorating earlier, it can mean the difference between the resident being cared for at the home rather than their being transferred to a hospital. This one-day programme will instruct nurses on how to correctly monitor a resident's wellbeing,  meaning less disruption for the resident and for the home.
