Deteriorating patient management education

    Hello all. I am interested in hearing how other trusts maintain knowledge and skills of the general nursing workforce regarding identifying and caring for the deteriorating patient. We have a deteriorating patient and resuscitation team who only offer BLS, ILS and ALS. We used to teach the ALERT course but that stopped circa 2003. I am now trying to implement the Level 1 competencies but find there is a massive knowledge gap. Our lead for education unfortunately sees this as knowledge the registered nurse is professionally obligated to maintain hence no teaching is required. I think it is vital to provide a reminder of A-E assessment and the non-technical skills of human factors, communication, leadership, conflict management etc. Interested to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
