ESCALATION pilot and PARROT Chart Update
This month, has been all about getting the sites ready to pilot the PARROT charts and the escalation system. For the ESCALATION project we are in the implementation phase. The education has been rolled out to help with the implementation of the use of the charts. Charts have been delivered to the sites. Educators and staff are getting familiar with the charts. Over 300 staff have attended some training about this chart and the project. Education and training is still ongoing through September 2019.
On Monday the 12th of August, Pania (Nurse Educator/ ESCALATION Project Officer) flew down to meet staff at Albany Health Campus. The day was very successful as we met with over 50 clinicians and provided training for the implementation of the tool. The training was well received with positive feedback about the collaboration of the health services, the PARROT tool and the Escalation system. Pania met up with staff from the Emergency Department, the High Dependency Unit, the Medical ward and the theatre areas.
For all other sites, in preparation for the ward and ED settings, the Educators have been very busy decorating staff areas with posters to raise awareness for the use of the tool. Family posters are on display as well. During the pilot the sites will have ongoing support provided to them from the Escalation project staff.
The commencement dates of the Pilot sites are
