Paediatric Trauma, Tactics for success. Simplifying the complicated

Management of children, particularly in the trauma setting has always tended to be a stressful patient cohort for many Paramedics. This session aims to shine a light on strategies to assist in maximising the understanding of common threads of assessment and treatment of both adults and children, and a focus on minimising aspects of paediatric care that create that stress. The session has a focus on the impact of Human Factors, and the ability of Paramedics to minimise this impact via the development and fostering of clinical resilience.
