Illness covers non traumatic conditions and is aimed at the non or junior paediatrician, or paediatric/ED nurse wanting to gain insights into all aspects of examining, investigating and managing acute illness in children. Injury covers all aspects of trauma and will be beneficial for those without emergency experience but who may face injury in children – this includes early specialty year grades in Emergency Medicine and all grades of paediatricians or advanced care practitioners or nurses.

This online course separates two distinct aspects of paediatric emergency care.

DFTB Beyond Essentials is a follow up to DFTB Essentials which allows us to have a more advanced level of discussion. Where DFTB Essentials covered the core knowledge, DFTB Beyond Essentials takes a deeper dive. We have put together a programme covering key clinical questions we ask ourselves in PEM.

This analysis and discussion will help inform your decision making to deliver effective, evidence-based care.

We will consider the evidence base around questions such as:

This baby’s fever is because of their immunisations, right?

Lumps and bumps – leave, reduce or remove?

Should I stop this baby’s cow’s milk?

This analysis and discussion will help inform your decision making to deliver effective, evidence-based care.
