Course description

This is a half-day multi-professional course aimed at core paediatric trainees, GP trainees and Foundation Year doctors undertaking a paediatric placement, paediatric higher trainees, paediatric nurses and paediatric health care assistants.

The course is primarily focused on the management of young people with physical and mental health co-morbidity in the A&E setting.

Participants will be involved in a series of simulated scenarios using actors. Debriefing models are employed to give feedback to participants on their contribution and assist them to learn positively and constructively from the experience.

Learning objectives

Aims

For participants:

• To have a better understanding of what to do during the engagement, assessment and management of young people presenting to A&E with both physical and mental health needs.

• To gain confidence and skills in managing distressed and agitated patients using de-escalation techniques.


After completing this course those attending should:

• Have improved confidence, knowledge and skills in the management of young people with physical and mental co-morbidity.

• Be able to understand the role that non-technical skills, (e.g. situation awareness, leadership and team work) play in the management of young people with physical and mental healthcare co-morbidity.

• Have raised awareness and improved skills overcoming the challenges that can arise when managing young people with mental health needs in an A&E setting.
