Paediatric First Aid (for childcarers)

First aid for children and infants covers the curriculum required by Ofsted.  It requires no previous knowledge of first aid. Those taking part will learn how to treat sudden illness or injury in any infant or child.

Infant and child mannikins enable participants to put their theoretical skills into practice and get a feel for what it is like to give cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to little people.  This is valuable as (new) first aiders are often concerned that they may hurt the baby or child and need to understand the balance between treating a child, rather than adult, and yet being effective – otherwise there is little point in attempting CPR! Participants will leave this course with confidence in their ability.

Training will be to October 2010 Resuscitation Council Guidelines.

[Please note the Resuscitation Council recommends re-skilling in CPR/resuscitation every 6mths to a year.]

  • To equip those caring for children to be able to respond appropriately and promptly to injury or sudden illness
