Program Description

Unlike trauma education programmes targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Paediatric Care After Resuscitation (PCAR) course is specifically designed for critical care, perioperative, ward, and rehabilitation nurses who primarily work with children. The course will also appeal to other health professionals working in trauma settings. This paediatric-specific version of the adult PCAR course gives inpatient staff members the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to provide excellent care to this challenging patient population.

No classroom? No problem! The new Live Online™ format brings PCAR-UK to you, wherever you are. This virtual version of the course includes interactive quizzes, Q&A opportunities, and features the same in-depth material and high-quality visuals as in the classroom. Course content is divided into four, 4-hour parts to promote learning retention. Enrollment includes a full-colour, 160+ page, downloadable eManual.
