When assessing children with respiratory distress, clinicians need to be reminded that babies and small children are a “work in progress” as far as lung function and physiology are concerned.

In this session we look at not just respiratory differences, but touch on thermoregulation, cardiac and other physiological differences in a child’s development.

In this session, you will:

  • Gain an awareness of physiological differences in respiratory, cardiac and thermoregulation
  • Receive information about how children respond differently in shock to adults.
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of maintaining a warm, pink, sweet child
  • Acquire knowledge and tips for calculating critical tube numbers in children.

 

This webinar was recorded LIVE on 4th January 2019 at 10am AEST (Brisbane time) and is included in the membership.

About The Paediatric Nurse

Our Story

The Paediatric Nurse was founded by Brooke Batchelor, a paediatric nurse and qualified teacher, after she experienced the frustration of finding affordable and accessible continuing professional development that was relevant to her paediatric nursing practice. Through this frustration, she decided to set up an online platform that assisted paediatric nurses in meeting their continuing professional development (CPD) annual registration standard requirement, with the Nursing and Midwifery Board Australia. In August 2018, The Paediatric Nurse CPD/CE platform was launched and began delivering live and recorded webinars featuring expert speakers from all over the world.

Our Vision

We believe that with access to relevant, affordable and evidence-based professional development, all members of the paediatric healthcare team can provide opportunities for children & their families to have a voice and receive care that is meets all of their needs. Our profit-for-purpose business model ensures a sustainable, long-term goal of improving paediatric healthcare experiences through programs that fund paediatric post-graduate training for nurses, funding hospital familiarisation programs and supporting play therapy programs to assist with aftercare or post-hospitalisation readjustment. We look forward to a future where children feel part of the decision making in their care and suffer no trauma related to their healthcare experience.

Our Mission

We exist so that you can receive evidence-based CPD/CE that is affordable, accessible and relevant to your practice by breaking down the barriers that prevent you from meeting with the experts. AND We exist to advocate for children in healthcare ensuring that they receive care that considers the whole child within the context of their family and the effects that the care they receive may have on their emotional wellbeing.

Our Values

• Empowerment – by providing engaging and relevant CPD/CE opportunities, we hope to influence the future directions of paediatric healthcare in Australia • Advocacy – we take child health and protection seriously and as registered nurses, we aim to advocate for Australian children to ensure their needs and rights are met • Access – the opportunity to speak directly to the experts and access the latest in evidenced-based care • Community – we encourage the essence of community and connection by making this space just as much yours as it is ours- your suggestions are always valued! • Passionate – our love for paediatric nursing is infectious • Selfcare – when nurses look after their own health & wellbeing, their practice can soar to new heights

Our Role

• Is an international online membership community that champions the success of paediatric nurses the world over • We provide continuing professional development (CPD) education/CE, training, resources and support for nurses via our online membership and social media channels • Helping paediatric nurses learn from world-wide experts • Inspires paediatric nurses to be leaders in their field • Provides content and resources to educate and inform paediatric nurses • Is an opinion leader and advocate on issues of importance to paediatric nurses across all communities.

Instructor

“I have been a nurse for more than 30 years with a background in emergency, psychiatry & hyperbarics. I have worked in Brisbane’s largest trauma units, & in Queensland’s most remote farther reaches as a remote nurse. I completed a Masters Degree in Emergency Nursing &, since then, have used this to follow my first passion- teaching nurses. I have been a full-time nurse educator for 15 years & regularly take a contract in the remote area or an emergency setting to remain clinically current. My passion for teaching nurses has given me many opportunities to support nurses in developing their skills & knowledge. I have taught for the Australian College of Emergency Nursing (ACEN) in their popular Trauma Nursing Core Course TNCC (ENA: USA between 2000 -2008) & continue to openly endorse this course despite no longer being affiliated with them. I began teaching at ECT4Health in 1996 which has offered educational programs to nurses, students and paramedics across Australia & New Zealand for some of Australia’s most prominent organisations. In 2004, I co-developed the Queensland Health Rural nursing programs called PACS and PEPEN. Published in 2006 in my research interest – Rural and Isolated Practice nursing (RIPERN), and in 2013, I was honoured by being nominated & voted one of Australia’s top 5 most Influential Nurses in an online survey by Nursing Review, & was interviewed by ABC Radio. I am a clinically active nurse, a self-confessed Trauma Junkie, and as an academic with casual appointments at USQ, I remain a passionate advocate for rural & remote nursing education. I am always up for a laugh & often crack a few jokes while teaching.”
