Aims/Description: Paediatric emergency medicine is a rewarding and challenging area of work. It is also an essential area of expertise for any clinician working with acutely unwell or injured children. Differences in children┐s physiology, illness and injury profiles and clinical presentations all make the assessment and management of children a challenge. This module will cover the key concepts essential to the care of children and will explore some of the current and changing clinical issues relevant to this field. The module will also equip the students with the ability to plan provision for high quality care to the paediatric population in an acute care setting.

Restrictions on availability: Student must work in a setting that provides care for children.
