Paediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals (PEPP) Launch @ the Emergency Services Show
Kate Anderson

Class Professional Publishing are excited to announce the launch of the first UK edition of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Paediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals (PEPP), at this year’s Emergency Services Show! At 1pm on Wednesday 19th September, be sure to visit the College of Paramedics Theatre (Stand J51) for the first chance to buy the leading training course on the care of children in emergency settings.

Published by Jones and Bartlett Learning - in partnership with the UK College of Paramedics - PEPP has been expanded and brought in line with guidance from the Joint Royal Colleges Ambulance Liaison Committee, the National Institute for Health (NHS), Care Excellence, and the Resuscitation Council UK. The title features the Paediatric Assessment Triangle (PAT), which includes the assessment of appearance, breathing, and circulation. It uses case studies, to provide an opportunity for critical thinking, and encourage students to consider their own approach to real emergencies. With step-by-step explanations and visual summaries to aid both basic and advanced life support and paediatric skills, PEPP is an indispensable read for healthcare professionals working with children.

The College of Paramedics is delighted to have had the opportunity to review the course to ensure its relevance in this setting, and to improve the clinical skills and knowledge of practitioners who manage these complex paediatric conditions. It builds on pre-registration skills, knowledge, and provides students with systematic assessment and continuity of care processes when managing paediatrics. I firmly believe that the localised UK PEPP course represents another important step in delivering high quality training here in the UK’

Gerry Egan,
Chief Executive of the College of Paramedics

We look forward to seeing you there, and cake is on us!
