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
Background: The APEC course is a development of the Paediatric Section at EuSEM, and will be conducted by its faculty members. At the end of the course participants will be presented with certificates of course completion by EuSEM.
Objectives: To provide physicians participating in the course with both knowledge and advanced skills in recognizing and managing a wide spectrum of paediatric emergencies including trauma, both in the hospital and pre-hospital settings.
General Outline: A 1.5-day course. During the morning hours of both days, lectures will be presented on the management of a wide spectrum of paediatric emergencies (including trauma) with emphasis on evidence-based literature. During the afternoon hours as well as during the morning of the second day, students will actively participate in small group advanced skill stations, case scenarios and simulations designed to provide knowledge and skills relevant to paediatric emergency medicine as well as elicit discussion on the clinical management of common paediatric emergencies including trauma.
A full course agenda is provided below.
Why register to this pre-course?
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.
This year, for the first time, two new modules will be introduced: 1. How to initiate sedation and analgesia for children in medical or trauma emergencies; and 2. A practical (including active hands-on demonstrations) introduction to the use of Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) in the paediatric ED setting.
