Patient assessment
skills session

Mark McDade, Senior Clinical Technologist, Glasgow

Patients in hospital are often at risk of becoming acutely ill. Unfortunately, there is a body of evidence showing that the recognition of deteriorating health by staff is often delayed or managed inappropriately resulting in late treatment, avoidable admission to ITU and unnecessary deaths. Clinical Technologist, Scientists and Engineers have a defined duty of care. Grounds for HCPC registration to be revoked include failing to complete an accurate patient assessment and responding to its findings competently.Similarly Clinical Technologists are expected to comply with the Academy of Health Care Science Good Scientific Practice which explicitly expects them to perform competent clinical assessments. This session will provide the necessary standardised tools to fulfil these competencies with confidence.
