Emergency Pediatric Care

Emergency Pediatric Care

The Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC) course is a comprehensive NAEMT education program for EMS practitioners. In this course you will gain knowledge and practice skills related to pediatric patient assessment and treatment, learn to deliver developmentally appropriate care, and build confidence as an EMS practitioner for the next pediatric emergency call. This course covers topics related to emergency care of sick and injured children, addressing the full spectrum of emergency illnesses, injuries and scenarios that an EMS practitioner might encounter. Pediatric emergency medicine has unique challenges. While there are fewer pediatric encounters in the field, there are even fewer critical pediatric encounters. It is essential to assess and triage those children who are in need of immediate treatment and transport and those who are stable. Scenarios and treatment plans are a key component of EPC, facilitated by experienced instructors in EMA’s simulated realistic training lab. Upon successful completion of this course, students receive a certificate of completion, a wallet card recognizing them as EPC providers for 4 years, and 16 hours CE Credit.

Classes are scheduled for groups and corporate trainings upon request. Please call 208-996-9248 to schedule a course.
