Join us to develop the confidence of adult practitioners in providing immediate care for the acutely unwell child. Tickets just £10 for RSM Trainees and £15 for Non-member Trainees and AHP.

Adult critical care practitioners are often called upon to help in the initial resuscitation of critically ill children and their management until they can be transferred to specialist paediatric intensive care units. Book your place to explore the principles of management and review resources available to help deliver care.

By attending, you will:

  • Understand the major anatomical and physiological differences between adults and children
  • Know the principles of management of disorders that are life-threatening to paediatric patients
  • Describe the general principles for stabilising the critically ill or injured child until more experienced help arrives
  • Understand the operation of local paediatric referral/retrieval services.
