RESTORE2: Recognise Early Soft-signs, Take Observations, Respond
The British Geriatric Society and Care Quality Commission recommend using RESTORE2 to take vital signs measurements and recognise deterioration in residents.
The South West AHSN is working with local Clinical Commissioning Groups and Integrated Care Systems to support care homes to access training in and sustainably adopt managing deterioration tools including RESTORE2 and RESTORE2 mini across the South West.
RESTORE2 was originally developed and co-produced by the NHS West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group and is now part of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care System and Wessex Academic Health Science Network.
RESTORE2 includes the National Early Warning Score (NEWS (2), a tool developed by the Royal College of Physicians to improve the detection and response to clinical deterioration in adult patients and is a key element of patient safety and improving patient outcomes.
RESTORE2 mini is a ‘soft signs’ only version of the tool for use in settings where it is not possible to make clinical observations.
Successes so far:
- Over 2,000 care home staff across Cornwall, Devon and Somerset have been trained in RESTORE2.
- With Blue Stream Academy we have developed an online RESTORE2 mini e-learning module which is accessible 24/7 to all carers.
Both RESTORE2 and RESTORE mini include the evidenced communication tool SBARD (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation and Decision).
