When a child is injured or taken ill, your approach to first aid will be different to the way treatment is administered to adults.

A child may show more signs of distress than an adult, even if their injuries are less severe and some medical equipment used may need additional components to make them more child-friendly. For example, defibrillators can be used safely on children only when paediatric pads are attached, these pads are specifically designed for use on children suffering a cardiac arrest.

This 2-day paediatric first aid course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to provide effective care to children suffering a range of injuries, allowing you to take confidence and decisive action to promote recovery.

This course is also assessed under the new RQF Framework. You can learn more about these changes in our informative blog which covers the new learning outcomes.
