We have been using PEWS for more than a year. To introduce it to the staff we developed a powerpoint and then made some simple case studies that we had nurses score on a post test. We also implemented this regionally and it has been built into our electronic medical record (we call it HealthConnect, it is an EPIC based system). We also have done some auditing to ensure accuracy in scoring.

Hello, We are in the process of builing and implement the PEWS (Pediatric Early Warning Score) Tool. Are other institutions using this tool? If so, how did you go about educating staff? Have you seen a difference since using PEWS? Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
