Paediatric education

  • Outreach education program

    An Outreach Education program is available to hospitals throughout Victoria, Southern NSW and Tasmania. We look forward to resuming face to face activities in 2022.  Please register your interest for these or send any other queries to: piperpaediatric.education@rch.org.au

    A seminar can be tailored to the needs of staff in your hospital. The seminar can include the following topics (but is not limited to these): airway management, fluid resuscitation of children, management of child trauma, asthma protocols, management of the shocked child, preparation for transport, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and care of neurological emergencies. It is a lecture-based program with ample opportunity for questions, small group discussions and demonstration of equipment. A practical component can be offered, allowing small group participation in intraosseous needle insertion, CPR, measuring cervical collars, log rolling, and scenario teaching.

    The sessions are relevant to a broad population of health care professionals. We therefore encourage participation of hospital staff that either have limited exposure to treatment of paediatric patients or to those experienced paediatric staff that wish to consolidate or expand their knowledge of the care and resuscitation of severely ill children. 

    Our next webinar on topics related to Paediatric Critical care is detailed below.

    These Interactive webinars involve challenging cases and small group discussion and include faculty from PIPER and PICU. We invite senior nursing and medical staff wanting to extend their knowledge of care for the sick paediatric patient.
