Acute Life Threatening Events Recognition and Treatment
The multi-professional ALERT course was developed in response to awareness that early recognition and treatment of the deteriorating patient may prevent in hospital deaths. The course is intended to teach healthcare staff how to:
- Anticipate, recognise and prevent critical illness at an early stage
- Initiate early intervention and treatment of the deteriorating patient
- Enable timely admission to higher dependency area
- Prevent unnecessary cardiac arrest
The course is designed for any member of the multi professional team coming into contact with the acutely unwell patient. It will compliment the ILS, BLS and WACS courses.
