One of the questions I receive most frequently from EMS personnel and training officers is “where can I find more pediatric related CE, especially online?”
CentreLearn hosts the National Association of EMTs Emergency Pediatric Care (NAEMT EPC) hybrid course which combines 8 hours of online training with 8 hours of classroom training. According to the NAEMT “This modular course format can fulfill the pediatric clinical and educational needs of an EMS agency while minimizing budgetary and logistical impacts.”
More about EPC from NAEMT: “Course lectures and interactive sessions address assessment; airway, breathing and circulation; understanding and caring for children; hypoperfusion and shock; cardiac emergencies and congenital cardiac defects, common medical emergencies, trauma, newborn resuscitation, vascular access, care team management, spinal motion restriction, children with special health-care needs, identification of life threats, scene choreography, transport decisions, and child abuse and neglect.”
Read more about the EPC course at the NAEMT website and learn how to schedule a course with an NAEMT EPC instructor.
