Clinical Support Worker AIM 

The Clinical Support Worker's AIM Course has been designed to develop the skills and knowledge of staff in recognising the signs of deteriorating illness and to understand their role within the escalation process.

The course has been specifically developed for clinical support staff who currently undertake clinical observations as a key component of their role.
