Paediatric modules for paramedics

Rachel Gowland, 10 February 2021

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) worked with the College of Paramedics to produce nine modules on paediatric care for paramedics.

During the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, paramedics may find the modules useful when caring for children in different scenarios, whether they are experienced paramedics, students or assistant practitioners.

The paediatrics for paramedics’ modules includes:

  • Introduction to paediatrics for paramedics
  • Applying safeguarding in practice
  • Childhood rashes
  • Diabetes in children
  • Poisons and toxidrome
  • The child with fever
  • The limping child
  • The child with respiratory distress
  • The vomiting child

Within each module, interactive sessions can be accessed on a variety of mobile devices and last approximately 20 minutes.

To register for this elearning module or for more information, please visit the paramedics programme page.
