Complete your Deteriorating Patient (BLS / ALS) online training today!

Are you a patient-facing clinician?

If you haven’t already, it’s time to complete your online deteriorating patient training.

Deteriorating patient training is required to recognise clinical deterioration, and training is a requirement for all nursing, medical, allied health, radiography, pharmacy, psychology and community services employees.

While we update our face-to-face training, you are only required to complete your online training, so log in to Latte and complete your modules today.

For more detailed information, please see the Deteriorating Patient Recognition and Management and Mandatory & Targeted Training documents on Prompt.

How do I access the training?

The online training is available on Latte.

To complete your deteriorating patient training, you need to access the course relevant to your area of practice, e.g.  Paediatric BLS, Paediatric ALS, Adult BLS or Adult ALS (excluding neonatal which includes practical).

Once you have refreshed yourself with the content, the quiz only takes 5-10 mins.

If you are unsure which course you are required to complete, please check with your manager or education team.

Do I need to do face-to-face training too?

Because of the impact of COVID-19, face-to-face deteriorating patient training is not currently required (excluding neonates). Until the end of the year, you only need to complete the online component and quiz.

A COVID-safe face-to-face training strategy will be rolled out early next year.

Please note: Face-to-face training may still be provided locally, where required. Priority will be given to new employees, post-graduates and staff in formal learning programs that require face-to-face completion. Current face-to-face training sessions will be delivered with strict COVID-safe requirements in place. Please discuss with your educator if required.

How do I record that I’ve done it?

Once you pass the quiz, Latte will automatically log your completion.

If you have completed the quiz previously on Latte, please ensure you reset the module before attempting it again so that completion is recorded correctly.

For more information about completing your deteriorating patient online training, please speak to your manager or education team.

Further information can be found on the Deteriorating Patient intranet page.
