Paediatric BASIC for Nurses is a two day interactive course comprising lectures, workshops and skill stations covering foundation knowledge and basic nursing skills required for nurses working in the Paediatric Critical Care setting.
This course aims to prepare:
- nurses with minimal critical care experience for working in the Paediatric Intensive Care environment where they may be required to be part of the team involved in resuscitation, stabilisation and ongoing management of critically ill and injured children.
- nurses working in a rural setting where they may be required to support the team involved in stabilising sick children prior to retrieval or transport to a tertiary hospital.
- nurses currently working in Paediatric Critical Care settings who wish to update their knowledge and skills.
