It is human nature to make mistakes. Examples include forgetting to do something, making an incorrect decision or failing to appreciate the context or relevance of what is going on around you. Anxiety that we will make any of these errors exist in all of us to varying degrees. As healthcare professionals, self doubt will start to happen when we are faced by an unwell patient in our care who continues to deteriorate despite our best efforts and intentions.

The safest, most efficient way to both assess and treat an unwell patient is to use a systematic approach. The algorithm that forms the basis of the RCS START and CCRISP courses is designed to provide this structured and systematic approach.
