Audio Session and Presentation Slides from National Conference Nurse Practitioners 2018

For many years, rapid response teams, also called medical response teams, have been in place to intervene when a patient is at risk for imminent deterioration. The overall goal of RRTs is to prevent poor patient outcomes, cardiac arrest, and death. These situations can be very challenging and often it is the acute care NP who is responsible for leading these teams. This session will review best practices for RRT activation, RRT response, and how to effectively and efficiently manage the most common clinical conditions that precipitate these calls.
