The Health Quality & Safety Commission has been supporting hospitals around New Zealand to implement and support New Zealand early warning system (NZEWS). This is a recognition and response system for adults.
We have recently uploaded an eLearning module to the Ministry of Health’s LearnOnline learning platform. The link is here https://learnonline.health.nz/ or via the Commission website https://www.hqsc.govt.nz/our-programmes/patient-deterioration/workstreams/recognition-and-response-systems/guidance for more information on the recognition and response system generally.
We thought this would be useful to share the details of this with you and your students so they have the opportunity to learn about EWS and its relevance to their practice. It would be appreciated if you could disseminate this information through your networks to all teaching sites, students and clinical staff.
