Paediatric medications can be complex and full of a number of calculations just for one medication!

In this session, Brooke will begin with the basics of medication calculations before moving onto the more complex paediatric medications involving dose calculations using weight, syrup based medications and IV medication calculations. You will be able to work on some example and practice questions as you go too so be prepared for an interactive session and a chance to perfect your math skills.

Towards the end, you will have the opportunity to work through a case study and bring all of what you have learned into a practical application of paediatric medication calculations.

This course comes with a printable handout to practice the questions as we go as well as a downloadable cheat sheet to laminate and post in the medication room at work!

In this session you will:

  • Revise basic medication calculations;
  • Learn how to calculate a child’s dose based on their weight;
  • Learn how to calculate syrup based medications with ease; and,
  • Learn how to prepare paediatric IV medications confidently

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.
