Improving risk stratification - detecting physiological deterioration

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterOther

Abstract

Clinicians use increasingly complex therapies to treat patients who have an escalating number of co-morbidities.1 Several factors contribute to this problem including ageing of the population, advances in medical technology, development of day surgery centres for lower risk surgery, hospital in the home programmes, drives to shorten length of stay, and societal expectations about what therapies should be offered, even at the end of life.
