Early Warning Score Training – NEWS – for Nursing Homes

Aim: This education programme is designed to enhance health professionals understanding of patients who are clinically deteriorating and the significance of altered clinical observations. It is based on an Australian Model which has been modified to suit the Irish Healthcare System with particular emphasis on Nursing Homes (Care Homes).

  • Early detection of patient deterioration
  • Use of a structured communication tool (ISBAR)
  • Promote early medical review, prompted by specific triggers
  • Use a definitive escalation plan

Objectives: This programme aims to improve communication between healthcare professionals, while adopting a patient centred quality driven approach, and enhancing timely management.
