The “Intermediate Care Skills – Paediatric” course has been produced to support clinicians who are already seeing and assessing adult patients but wanting some knowledge around the assessment of children. The course aims to complement the knowledge and skills which clinicians already possess and to develop and support them as they develop their practice into seeing children.

This is a knowledge based course and is not focussed on physical assessment. This course is aimed for those with limited confidence and knowledge of paediatric assessment. It is meant to be a base on which you can develop your practice from, that can go on to be further developed in practice.

    Who will benefit:

    This three-day course is aimed at Nurse Practitioners, ACPs and AHPs who are wanting to gain an understanding of assessing children in primary care and the community. The course will build upon the assessment skills you already have, helping you adapt to seeing children and teaching on common childhood presentations seen in the community.
