Abstract:
Recognising Acute Deterioration: Active Response (RADAR) is a simulation based teaching session using simulated patients to portray acutely unwell adult hospital patients. The genesis, development and progress of RADAR will be discussed along with the findings of questionnaires and focus groups from two further cycles of action research. Readers will become aware of the impact which RADAR makes to the evidence and learning surrounding the recognition and assessment of clinical deterioration in adult hospital patients. The study investigated the impact of simulation on medical students’ confidence in recognising and responding to clinical deterioration in adult hospital patients using simulation, simulated patients and moulage (make-up).
