Developed in the belief that early identification and intervention of deteriorating patients would reduce the number of deaths, early warning scores (EWS) have become a routine feature of work in UK emergency departments (EDs) and are becoming increasingly common in paediatric emergency care. They are popular with managers, commissioners and clinicians, yet the authors of this report state that there is little evidence of this reduction in the literature.

Major trauma services in the UK underwent reform in April 2012, following reports that trauma care in England was 'unacceptable' and in need of desperate change, and urgent recommendations were made to improve coordination, costs, and information about trauma care to avoid unnecessary deaths. Following the reconfiguration of services, NHS England highlighted the need for nurse key-workers, or coordinators, to support patients through the major trauma pathway and into rehabilitation. This article examines the literature on the coordinator role to understand its function in UK and international major trauma networks...

Nurses are being deterred from working in pressured emergency departments (EDs) because of the associated stress, MPs have warned. A Commons health committee report on winter pressures in emergency care says poor performance has 'become the norm' for some NHS trusts, due to increasing demand for services, insufficient staff numbers and bed-blocking.

Ismalia de Sousa, Sue Woodward
After 40 years, the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) is the resource of choice for assessing the level of consciousness in patients with neurological conditions. Clinicians' ability to monitor patients' conditions, identify deterioration and make clinical decisions depends on their ability to carry out GCS assessments, so it is vital that they understand it. This article explores how best to use the GCS in clinical practice and examines some of the factors that can affect the accuracy of assessments. The article also explains the difference between peripheral and central stimuli...
