Returning to Practice in Acute Paediatric Emergency

A two day blended learning course designed to aid those returning to acute paediatric emergency care after a period of absence.

Overview

Returning to clinical practice can be a challenging experience, especially when faced with unwell paediatric patients.

This course aims to improve your confidence in navigating the challenges associated with the care of unwell paediatric patients. We will explore the challenges associated with returning to practice and consider psychological approaches to making the return to practice as supported as possible.

We craft our simulation scenarios to the needs of the candidates, providing the unique opportunity to rehearse the scenarios that candidates fear most when contemplating their return to practice.

Learning outcomes

The course is delivered by an expert faculty of paediatric anaesthetists, intensivists, psychologists and simulation practitioners. Virtual workshops will cover a broad spectrum of clinical presentations and address how we can best support ourselves in retuning to practice.

Day 2 workshops are designed to enhance practice in the skills required to manage unwell paediatric patients. These include basic airway management and cannulation techniques followed by immersive paediatric simulation scenarios, specially selected to meet individual learning need.

Who should attend?

ACPs and doctors in training from a paediatric, anaesthetic and paediatric critical care background, who are returning after a period of absence for any reason.
