Acute Paediatric Neurology

This is a practical course that will teach emergency medicine staff to recognise children presenting with common acute neurological conditions and what to do next. It will be taught by Consultant Paediatric Neurologists and Paediatric Emergency Medicine Consultants in lectures and small group workshops.

This course will cover secondary headache disorders and the red flags to recognise, the assessment and management of the confused child, the assessment and management of the child with decreased conscious level, management of raised ICP, when is it safe to LP a child, an appreciation of abnormal movements and of gait abnormalities in children presenting to ED, management of ‘acute brain attacks’, and how to choose appropriate neuroimaging in the acute setting.

“It is estimated that about a third of all paediatric emergencies are neurological and about a quarter of all admissions to PICU are primarily neurological (not counting the large number of PICU patients that develop a neurological complication of a non-neurological disorder). In addition, a significant number of PICU admissions are the result of medical complications of neurological disability.”

This course is aimed at:

  • Paediatric Emergency Medicine Trainees (particularly ST3-5)
  • General Paediatricians – doing EM rotation
  • Paediatric Emergency Medicine Staff Grades
  • Advanced Care Practitioners in PEM
  • Adult Emergency Medicine Trainees doing their paediatric block

Cost: GBP 155.00

CPD Points: 6. You will be able to download a pdf of your CPD certificate following attendance at the course.
