DFTB’s Paediatric Trauma course is a two day course on 17th and 18th March. It covers key topics in major trauma presentations in children. We have put together a programme covering key paediatric major trauma presentations and delivered by expert faculty. Sessions will include presentations on the evidence-base and discussions around common clinical challenges; and we will have live panels to answer questions from you, the audience. This course will also give you access to nine procedural videos covering trauma procedures.

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

We will cover topics including: major head injuries; debriefing; chest trauma; penetrating trauma; and eye injuries. This course is aimed and paediatric and emergency medicine trainees, nursing staff, and early career consultants who may see paediatric trauma as part of their emergency department work.

RCPCH has approved this activity for CPD in accordance with the current RCPCH CPD Guidelines.
