This one day paediatric update day promotes excellence in paediatric care in the community.

The day will cover the assessment and management of common acute Paediatric presentations in the community. Sessions will include small group modules and will be facilitated by a team of local Paediatric Specialists. It will therefore also be an opportunity to meet your local colleagues and understand local pathways and resources.

Workshops will include discussion on the new local Paediatric Antibiotic Prescribing guidelines, where relevant to topics.

  • To help individuals to develop their skills in assessment and management of children with acute clinical problems.
  • To bring local primary and secondary care colleagues together to learn from each other.
