Recognising and responding to acute physiological deterioration

Ensuring that patients who deteriorate receive appropriate and timely care is a key safety and quality challenge. The Commission has introduced a range of systems to better manage recognition of and response to acute physiological deterioration.

The Commission commenced a program of work in 2008 with the goal of improving the recognition of, and response to, acute deterioration in hospitals and other acute care facilities.
