Unfamiliar Pediatrics – A Closer Look

This live program has been converted to a webinar and is being moved to our online learning website EMLRC Online. They will become active in October 2017.

A severely ill child can cause doubt and overcautious behavior on the part of any healthcare provider. Pediatric patients requiring emergency care have unique needs, often requiring specialized equipment and training of personnel. The Unfamiliar Pediatrics – A Closer Look program is designed to provide all prehospital providers with up-to-the-minute education and training to rapidly assess and treat a severely ill or critically injured child.

  • Combination of Didactic Lectures and Hands-On Skills (including simulation)
  • 4 hours CE per program (3 programs total)
  • Topics include: Neonatal Resuscitation, Cardiovascular Emergencies and Trauma/Non-Accidental Trauma
  • FREE to all licensed EM Professionals in Florida

Funded by an educational grant from the Florida Department of Health, FCEP & EMLRC’s Unfamiliar Pediatrics was created in effort to increase education and training in the area of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and provision of care to pediatric patients.

Newborn Resuscitation

Topic: Newborn Resuscitation

The first session of FCEP & EMRLC’s Unfamiliar Pediatrics – A Closer Look program targets the critical components and skills necessary for successful newborn resuscitation. The program will utilize a combination of didactic lectures, hands-on skill stations, and interactive high-fidelity simulation scenarios to introduce participants to the concepts and techniques involved in newborn resuscitations.

 

Cardiovascular & Respiratory Emergencies

Topic: Cardiovascular & Respiratory Emergencies

The second session of FCEP & EMLRC’s Unfamiliar Pediatrics – A Closer Look program targets the critical components and skills necessary for successful assessment and management of cardiovascular and respiratory emergencies in the pediatric patient. The program will utilize a combination of didactic lectures and interactive high-fidelity simulation scenarios to introduce participants to the concepts and techniques involved in managing the aforementioned emergencies. Lectures will include a review of pediatric airway management; respiratory distress; and cardiac dysrhythmias involving a pediatric patient. The simulation sessions will focus on management of respiratory distress and cardiac dysrhythmias utilizing several high-fidelity simulators. Finally, a question and answer session at the end of the program will provide participants a forum to interact with leading pediatric emergency medicine specialists, and an opportunity to ask questions related to cardiovascular and respiratory emergencies in the pediatric patient.

Trauma and Non-Accidental Trauma

Topic: Trauma and Non-Accidental Trauma

The third and final session of FCEP & EMLRC’s Unfamiliar Pediatrics – A Closer Look program delves into the intricacies of trauma and non-accidental trauma in the pediatric patient with an emphasis on the fact that children aren’t simply small adults. The program will utilize a combination of didactic lectures and interactive high-fidelity simulation scenarios to review the concepts and techniques involved with assessment, recognition, and management of traumatic injuries in children.
