Russell, K. P., Waldron, H., Tor, E., & Waldron, N. (2020). Using a clinical deterioration scenario (video) as an approach for interprofessional learning. Journal of Interprofessional Education and Practice, 20.
For effective management of clinical deterioration, health professionals must work together to recognise and respond to the patients changing health status. This paper provides an overview of the clinical deterioration video, used as a learning tool to engage medical, nursing and physiotherapy students and junior clinicians for the purpose of identifying the deteriorating patient and to support the development of interprofessional teamwork skills. This paper describes the perspectives of educators who have used this resource, a description of the resource, its evaluation, and access to the resource. The educators felt that the clinical deterioration video provides a learning environment in which learners develop an insight into the essential knowledge and skills required to support interprofessional practice and good patient outcomes.
