Abstract/Summary The Adult Deterioration Detection System (ADDS) observation chart described in this short report was developed as part of a research project carried out at The University of Queensland for Queensland Health and the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC). The aim of the project was to investigate the design and use of observation charts in recognising and managing patient deterioration, including the design and evaluation of a new adult observation chart that incorporated human factors principles.
