Unfamiliar Pediatrics – A Closer Look

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

SPACE IS LIMITED! Registration will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. For registration details and information, please email Evan Buckley at ebuckley@emlrc.org
