  • The NEWS2 Game was created by Kate Turner, Digital Charge Nurse at Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Kate has been using the game with students and qualified staff for over 4 years.

    The game’s objectives are:

    • Generate discussion around how observations relate to a patient’s health.
    • Encourage appreciation that each observation may be a cause for concern, depending upon the patient’s underlying conditions and individual ABCDE assessment.
    • Appreciate how NEWS2 scores are calculated and associated errors.
    • Establish uniform completion of NEWS2 documents to improve recognition of unwell patients.
    • Recognise the need for escalation, de-escalation, care reviews, and reassessment.
