The aim of this course is to give healthcare professionals who see acutely unwell children a practical and evidence based approach to diagnosis and management of a wide range of infections. The first day of the course aims to provide a thorough understanding of the regular pitfalls in the diagnosis of infections and will highlight the life threatening consequences of such errors.
The second day of the course builds on the practical content learned during the first day. It includes a short simulation session, interactive lectures which highlight recent advances in identifying and diagnosing serious infections, and how to cope with the threat of new and emerging infections. The course ends with some salutary reminders of the need for thorough assessment in children with infections.
The course is part of a range of short courses spread throughout the academic year which are available both to students who are enrolled on the MSc in paediatrics and child health and as stand-alone CPD accredited programmes for all healthcare professionals. The courses are offered in line with level 3 of the RCPCH curriculum.
