NAEMT’s Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC) is a course that provides better training and resources for all providers of urgent and emergent pediatric medical care. It is designed for all levels of practitioner, including EMTs, paramedics, nurses, physician assistants, and physicians, and focuses on critical situations that enable the provision of the best treatment for sick and injured children in the field.
EPC is a sixteen-hour, two-day program that consists of lectures, interactive skills stations, small group critical thinking discussions, and patient simulations. Topics covered include: pathophysiology of the most common critical pediatric emergency issues, application of the Pediatric Assessment Triangle, a tool to help practitioners rapidly and accurately assess pediatric patients, the importance of family-centered care, understanding, and communicating with children, airway management, breathing, and oxygenation, cardiac emergencies, recognizing child abuse and neglect, hypo-perfusion and shock, newborn resuscitation, pediatric trauma, and treating children with special needs.
Students who successfully complete the EPC course will receive a certificate of completion that is valid for four years.
