Course Description

Positive impact on health outcomes can be achieved through understanding modern paediatric concepts and improving knowledge about child care. Our objective is to promote national coverage of essential interventions throughout a continuum of child health care.

Paediatric nurses contribute to safe nursing care of children and reduce child mortality and morbidity. They need access to continuous professional development in child care updates to enable them to be safe and confident when caring for children and their families.

This seminar is relevant as it aims to prepare the nurses and other healthcare professionals by updating the current paediatric care in the community and healthcare settings.
