Recognising and Responding to Acute Patient Illness and Deterioration




The philosophy of the RRAPID programme is to emphasise timely and rapid response to the acutely ill patient and equip medical students and junior doctors with the appropriate skills to manage such patients.
A specialist team of consultant physicians and clinical educators have developed the RRAPID app, eBook and teaching programme to provide mobile and interactive resources suitable for this purpose.

The RRAPID approach is now taught throughout all years of the MBChB curriculum at the University of Leeds. It uses simulation based methods to allow medical students a safe environment to acquire and practice the skills required in recognising and responding to the acutely ill and deteriorating patient.
