One of the greatest challenges in clinical practice is the timely recognition of acutely ill patient. Delays in recognition and initiation of appropriate therapy will adversely affect patient outcomes.
Acute Illness Management (AIM) training is an enormously successful UK based training programme that aims to provide systematic training for clinical staff in the assessment and management of acutely ill patients. AIM training is delivered in 94 NHS Hospitals in the UK, 2 UK Universities where pre-registered nurses, midwives and Physiotherapists are trained in AIM and in hospitals in Canada, Africa and India.
The app will act as a quick reference guide for clinical staff providing a systematic and structured ABCDE approach for recognizing and responding to acutely ill patient, screening and initial management of sepsis and using the SBAR technique as a communication tool
