Neurological observations are used to determine the neurological status of an individual who is at risk of deterioration or has an altered state of consciousness. This course will demonstrate how to conduct neurological observations and use the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS).
This is an Advancing course on the Altura Learning Pathway and is recommended for clinical staff working in aged care.
After completing this course, learners will be able to:
● Explain what a neurological assessment is
● Identify when to complete neurological observations
● Demonstrate how to conduct neurological observations and use the Glasgow Coma Scale
The course is accompanied by a comprehensive set of learning resources, including a course information sheet, infographic, quick reference guide and coordinator resources, which include a training game.
This course is available in a SCORM format. It has been developed using eLearning authoring tools that provide greater interactivity and flexibility for learners. The design of the course maximises active rather than passive learning, which enhances the learning process and increases knowledge retention.
