Foundations of Pediatric Preparedness Virtual Forum
About the Forum
This forum is geared for pediatric emergency care coordinators (PECC's), EMS leadership, and ED nursing and physician leadership. The goal of the forum is to help improve pediatric preparedness in your institution. This forum includes modules on how to teach simulation using Do-It-Yourself (DIY) simulation models, how to lead critical debriefing in the prehospital and emergency department setting, and how to use structured handoffs to improve sign-outs during transitions of care. Modules include lectures, demonstration videos, virtual panel discussions, and activities that you can replicate at your institution. This forum was sponsored by the New England EMSC agencies (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT). More information about forum content can be found at the bottom of this page or by clicking here
