I can’t breathe. My head aches. I feel hot. My inhaler is not working. I can’t sleep. I can’t stop coughing. This rash won’t go away. My stomach hurts. Isn’t that a good pulse oximeter number?
All the above sound familiar? These are just a few of the complaints we hear from children when they are “not well”. Children may present with acute illnesses, flare-ups of chronic conditions or life-threatening complications. As pediatric healthcare providers, it is essential that we grasp and understand the inter-relationship of both complex and common pediatric conditions. During this full-day, interactive program, you will learn evidence-based strategies for the recognition, prevention, and management of a number of pediatric conditions that cause children to “not feel so good”, along with the skills to differentiate between CAUSE and SYMPTOM. Stephen will provide you with the knowledge you need through discussion, case studies and “fun”, addressing pharmacological, technological and non-pharmacological management, including critical assessment clues and interventions. You will leave this educational event feeling confident to manage complex childhood conditions!
