About this event

  • Date and time Thu 29 Oct 2020 from 9:50am to 5:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Paediatrics and Child Health, London School of Paediatrics

Join this LSP study day to develop your knowledge of the paediatric registrar working acutely in the emergency department.  This webinar will review the best practice management for children presenting with acute respiratory, cardiac, neurological and orthopaedic emergencies.

The study day will cover some of the pit falls of the paediatric doctor working in the emergency department and how these can be overcome. New diagnostic techniques will also be described with the hope that they will be able to assist the identification of the acutely sick child, inform management decisions and improve patient outcomes.

This study day is aimed primarily at ST4 and 5 paediatric trainees, but is accessible and relevant to a much wider audience. All clinicians working in the emergency department providing care to acutely unwell children will find the day informative. Lectures and interactive sessions will be delivered by experts within these fields and provider an opportunity to cover topics that are often difficult to address within the hospital setting.   

A CPD certificate with 6 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.

Webinar recordings will be available for registered delegates up to 30 days after the live webinar, via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place. 

This webinar will be recorded and stored by the Royal Society of Medicine and may be distributed in future on various internet channels.
