Outreach Education

A significant part of NWTS' role is to provide a formal Outreach Education Programme for District General Hospital staff, within the region, involved in the care of the critically ill or injured child. We have committed to providing at least one session in each hospital per year. We aim to run outreach between April and October.

Who should attend outreach?

Outreach is open to all of the MDT. We welcome colleagues from Emergency Department, Paediatrics, Anaesthetics, and anywhere else that looks after Paediatric patients.
It is open to nurses, students, health care support workers, ODPs, consultants, medics, physiotherapists etc.

Typical Outreach Education

  1. Review of Clinical Cases Presenting to your Hospital

  2. Update on Aspects of Management of a Critically Ill or Injured Child

  3. Simulation and Case-based Discussions

If you would like to arrange an Outreach Session in your Hospital, please contact one of our Clinical Nurse Specialists:

Feedback

"Recently we had an excellent teaching session from NWTS at WWL, which included a presentation on Button Batteries. This was one of the best presentations I have seen. I cannot remember a talk that has so radically changed clinical management.

"At WWL we have sent a memo to all front-line staff instructing them to contact NWTS for any Button Battery ingestion and our Clinical Support Secretary has produced a poster which I thought I would share with you.

"Many thanks for providing an excellent Service which is greatly appreciated at Wigan.
