Event description
This course provides a thorough and systematic approach to assessing acutely unwell children and planning their further management/referral.

About this event

Children’s Services at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital have been successfully providing CAKES training to health professionals for over ten years.

The course involves a series of systems lectures delivered by Paediatricians and senior nursing staff followed by simulation scenarios on mannequins to consolidate the lecture learning. There is also an assessment of the sick child lecture, sepsis and safeguarding.

The course applies physiological principles to underpin your assessment and pathways to assist you in your clinical decisions. There is an assessment at the end of the course – this involves an MCQ and one practical scenario. All the scenarios are taught in a very comfortable non-threatening manner and usually are found to be quite fun!

We have taught a variety of healthcare professionals over the years – Health Visitors, School Nurses, Practice Nurses, Paramedics and GPs who are involved in assessing acutely ill children, either in hospital, primary care or a community setting. We tend to find everyone throws themselves into it, all have learned from the course and given very positive feedback.

£475.00 - 3 day course

(inclusive of reading materials, refreshments and lunch)

UPDATE: We plan to deliver this course face to face at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital
