Emergency Medicine Early Warning System (EMEWS)

EMEWS national clinical guideline was developed by the HSE National Clinical Programme for Emergency Medicine and was launched in 2018 by the Minister for Health.

It applies to adults patients (16 years and older) attending an Emergency Department (ED) in Ireland and is relevant to all healthcare professionals working in EDs.

This guideline should be used in conjunction with other National Clinical Effectiveness Committee national clinical guidelines.
