08 Jun Don’t defer your Deteriorating Patient training
Accreditation may have been temporarily deferred, but that’s no reason to defer your Deteriorating Patient training. As we work to reschedule our accreditation survey, you must complete your Deteriorating Patient training as soon as possible.
Up to September 30, completion of the online deteriorating patient LATTE courses (excluding neonatal courses) will be considered as full completion of the course.
How do I access the training?
Log in to LATTE, search for “deteriorating patient” in the course catalogue, and open the deteriorating patient training specific to your area/speciality.
If prompted, don’t forget to hit the “Reset Completion” button before you re-complete the course, and feel free to pause and return to your course if you need.
Remember, LATTE can be accessed on-site or remotely via your computer, tablet or mobile device.
Do I need to do face-to-face training too?
Face-to-face training is currently being reviewed. Because of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, completion of the online component of your deteriorating patient training before September 30, 2021 will be considered as full completion of the course.
Please note: A face-to-face practical session is still available for:
- Neonatal training
- Some new employees and postgraduate or local program students
How do I record that I’ve done it?
Once you pass the quiz, LATTE will automatically log your completion. You can view this in your learning record on LATTE.
Why is deteriorating patient training important?
Deteriorating Patient training enhances your skills and confidence in accurately recognising clinical deterioration and providing an appropriate and timely response.
It is a requirement for our patient-facing workforce, including all nursing, medical, allied health, radiography, pharmacy, psychology and community services employees.
Where can I get more information?
For more information about deteriorating patient training, please speak to your manager or contact: DeterioratingPtCoordinator@monashhealth.org
