This training is for HCSWs and therapy assistants.

The BEACH course is based around a simple, illustrated manual that covers basic signs of clinical deterioration and what is appropriate action for unregistered healthcare staff to take and when to ask for help. The training aims to improve the skill of recognising the deteriorating patient and teaches the importance of proactive communication with colleagues. Content includes:

  • Airway problems
  • Breathing problems
  • Circulation problems
  • Good handover of critical information
  • Prioritisation of workload

In addition the session will look at maintaining good skin care and when to escalate problems, how to minimise the risk of falls and NEWS2 documentation.
