Paediatric Trauma

Paediatric Trauma for Medical, Nursing, Paramedics

Assessment, Resuscitation, Transfer


What happens in the first few hours can make a significant difference in a seriously injured child.

This hands-on procedural skill and clinical simulation workshop will teach you how to approach assessment and management of the injured child. You will become confident to recognise the clues to serious injury, initiate resuscitation and identify options for analgesia. You will learn how to manage the c-spine, apply a femoral traction splint, set up for chest tube insertion and practice teamwork and communication skills

The workshop is suited to medical officers (GPs, ED medical officers, Training MOs), Nurses, Paramedics and Students.

A rewarding way to consolidate and build skills in acute care

The EDGE course is an eLearning resource designed to allow medical officers, nurses, paramedics and students to examine a wide range of emergency presentations and develop skills in acute care. The course is delivered in a series of 20 modules (at a cost of $9.90 per module) and explores the following topics : the sick child, acute headache, acute abdominal pain, severe asthma, ECG interpretation, acute poisoning, first trimester bleeding, major trauma, upper and lower limb orthopaedic injuries, blood gas interpretation, eye emergencies, epistaxis, mental health emergencies and acute pain management. For those that want to go even further with their learning, there are 14 Extended EDGE (or eEDGE) courses that allow the learner to dive in deep and explore a topic of their interest. Very exciting !

At the completion of each EDGE module a CPD certificate is awarded that identifies completion of 2 hours of CPD. An "EDGE Course Certificate" is available at the completion of the course confirming 40 hours of Continuing Professional Development.
