Recognition of the unwell child
Karen facilitated a session for a large group of nurses, nursing students, medical students and one of the GPs on paediatric presentations and patient assessment. This was a very interactive session with great participation from all disciplines in the scenarios conducted. Highlights from the session were discussion and teaching about the AVPU scale, management of a choking child and sourcing equipment from their own treatment/resus bay. From the feedback after this session, it was decided to provide handouts for future visits to save on time taking notes during the session.
