This course uses an innovative e-learning activity to allow the course faculty to undertake a learning needs analysis for each group of delegates. The one day course will be tailored to the learning needs of attendees and involves simulated clinical scenarios in a ward setting. Candidates will also attend seminars based upon identified learning needs.

The aim of the course is to strengthen decision making when caring for a child who requires critical care. By the end of the course you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to recognise a deteriorating child, and have an understanding of how strong decision making influences outcomes for acutely unwell children.
