Tara Boyd RN (B Nurs). Grad Cert. Critical Care (Emergency). Cert IV Training and Assessment.
I have 20 years nursing experience in a variety of settings including medical, surgical, palliative, emergency and school nursing.
I am a mum of two very active, sport-loving boys. We are always on the go! In my spare time, I love reading and am part of a book club, love watching tennis and eating out with friends and family.
Since the dawn of time, babies and children have been inquisitive and adventurous. No matter what precautions we take, there will be occasions when they reach for that small object that looks tasty, fall, get stung or run toward that pool. Fear and panic create a barrier and stop us performing under pressure. I am passionate that at CPR Kids we empower and equip caregivers of children so they can react and calmly provide appropriate care to a baby or child in need.
My most important piece of advice for parents and carers is arm yourself with theoretical and practical knowledge so you can spring into action at a moment’s notice. We should all have the opportunity to learn CPR and First Aid. They are essential life skills for any parent, grandparent or caregiver.
