The course is designed for 40 participants (skill stations and case scenarios will be conducted in small groups). More specifically, it is designed for PEM Physicians, Paediatricans, and Emergency Physicians who provide care for children in emergencies and who want to refine their knowledge and skills in PEM.
Course description & learning objectives
The APEC course has been developed and is conducted by the Paediatric Section of EuSEM. The course has been designed and targeted for PEM Physicians, Paediatricians, and Emergency Physicians who provide care for children in emergencies and who want to enhance their knowledge and skills in Paediatric Emergency Medicine (PED).
During a day and half, participants will be exposed to lectures on how to recognize and how to manage a large spectrum of paediatric emergencies (including trauma) with emphasis on evidence-based literature.
In addition to the lectures, there will be small group sessions which will include advanced skill stations, case scenarios and simulations designed to improve knowledge and skills related to paediatric emergency medicine as well as to encourage discussion on the clinical management of common paediatric emergencies.
Emphasis will be placed on interactive sessions between faculty and participants, thereby allowing participants to put forward any questions they may have.
The next course will take place at the upcoming EuSEM conference that will be held in Vienna on the 1ste and 2de of October 2016.
This year, two new modules will be introduced: 1. How to initiate sedation and analgesia for children in medical or trauma emergencies? and 2. How to deal with major incident evolving children and management of polytraumatized children?
At the end of the course, participants will be provided with certificates of course completion by EUSEM.
