KNOWLEDGE FOR LIFE

 

COMBINING CPR, FIRST AID AND COMMON ILLNESSES FOR BABIES AND CHILDREN

Most young children will get on average between 5 to 10 viral infections per year. Would you know how to recognise and respond?

How can you tell the difference between a healthy child and a sick child? What do you do if your child bumps their head? What is silent choking? What is CPR?

These are all questions that are covered in the 6 hour Knowledge for Life class.  This class is designed to equip you with a toolbox of knowledge, hands-on learning and real life situations so that you are prepared to take on the most common first aid emergencies and illness related situations that you may face - to keep your child healthy and safe right from the start.

Guided by your expert paediatric nurse and midwife educators, this class will inspire and empower to act confidently in any medical situation.
