SCP: Paediatric Early Warning Scores (PEWS) Information on needed resources


Experience from the UK collaborative shows that few resources are needed to implement the PEWS charts. Staff is required to lead the project. Time for training staff needs to be allocated, although this is generally short (10 minutes can be enough). The PEWS charts need to be printed, although as they might replace the old vital signs charts, this would not necessarily generate an extra need for resources.
