Tamworth-Assessing the Sick Child and GP Immunisation Update - Tamworth
Please join us for this Paediatric update “Assessing the Sick Child” and The Current Immunisation Schedule and Meningococcal Vaccination.
This session aims to reaffirm local GPs knowledge of common presentations in children and when the need is indicated for further evaluation of sepsis. Also to give GPs information on the updated immunisation schedule and newly available Meningococcal Vaccination.
Karen is an ED physician who has also worked as a rural GP and is also a parent so knows well the dilemma of diagnosing sick children. In her “spare time” she provides support to the EMET programme offering zoom sessions to rural GPs on important emergency topics.
