NEWS flow chart decision support tool and Parkinson'sKnowledge
A new tool, developed by patient-facing clinicians, offers a simple way for hospital staff to identify patients that may be suitable for discharge, and to suggest alternative ways of providing ongoing care for that person.
The NEWS Flow Chart Decision Support Tool has been designed to support ‘balanced risk’ discharge decision-making on a 'day to day' basis.
Providing a clear framework for decision-making, and encouraging appropriate planning and use of discharge pathways, the tool aims to optimise the best care for the patient, and in the most appropriate setting for them.
