This bespoke course is designed for forensic nurses to develop skills to competently assess patients who are acutely unwell within a prison environment. The course provides the relevant skills and knowledge to initiate timely care for deteriorating patients, enhance patient safety, and help reduce avoidable admissions to acute services.
Through the use of lectures, workshops and simulation, the following topics are covered:
- A-E assessment of unwell adults
- Dealing with sepsis in a prison setting
- An introduction to history taking and identifying ‘red flag’ symptoms
- Communication skills including the use of SBAR
- Partnership development between acute and primary care
