- This short course aims to enhance students’ knowledge, understanding and confidence in approaching a range of Paediatric Urgent and Emergency Care presentations. The module will look in detail at effective assessment and clinical management of minor and major, illness or injury.
- The module will use face-to-face teaching, workshops and discussion forums to explore the theory underpinning paediatric practice. Practical simulation activity will allow the student to gain additional exposure to this complex group of patients.
- The module can be completed at Level 6 (PP673) or Level 7 (PP773). The course is validated for 30 academic credits at either level, receiving a joint award from The Academy of Professional Development and Bucks New University.
