It is aimed at GPs, GP Trainees, Advanced Practitioners (including Paramedics, Practice nurses, Clinical Pharmacists) and anybody in a role that involves the assessment of and clinical decision making around the care of children in Primary Care.

The day will cover the assessment and management of common acute Paediatric presentations in the community. Sessions will include small group modules and will be facilitated by a team of local Paediatric Specialists. It will therefore also be an opportunity to meet your local colleagues and understand local pathways and resources.
Workshops will include discussion on the new local Paediatric Antibiotic Prescribing guidelines, where relevant to topics.
