The SPSP Acute Adult collaborative, which began in September 2021, has a focus on the recognition, response, review and reassessment of the deteriorating patient.

 

Deteriorating Patient

In Autumn 2023 the SPSP Deteriorating Patient driver diagram and change package was updated following publication of the SIGN Care of the Deteriorating Patient Guideline (2023). The driver diagram and change package is a resource to support NHS boards with their deteriorating patient quality improvement work. The update is evidence informed and was co-designed with the SPSP Deteriorating Patient improvement network. The network includes clinical and quality improvement experts from across NHS Scotland.

The SPSP Deteriorating Patient work stream includes sepsis. As part of reviewing the wider deteriorating patient driver diagram and change package an update of the SPSP sepsis change package was undertaken. The co-design process included an expert reference group, people with lived and living experience, published guidelines and evidence.
