The assessment and management of a child with a rash, infection, or febrile illness is often not well understood and can be especially challenging. This seminar will provide nurses, and others who care for children, with the knowledge to assist in determining what may be causing a child’s rash, and how to manage any associated conditions.
Additionally, this interactive program will allow nurses to differentiate common, mild, and more serious infections that occur in children, and the assessment and ongoing management required. Case studies are included throughout the two-day program, involving conditions such as infectious rashes, non-infectious rashes, respiratory infections, neurological infections, and many more.
If you work with children regularly, or you are occasionally required to care for them, you will find this seminar to be essential learning. This seminar and this educator have been consistently highly evaluated and registrations are high, so book early to ensure your place.

This program explains and discusses the conditions that cause childhood infections and rashes. It will be useful to a diverse range of nurses, assisting them in the early identification and care of sick children.
Purpose of Program
This program provides nurses with continuing professional development that examines and explains childhood infections and rashes. It will discuss different types of infections and rashes, including how to assess the child, and how to administer and prioritise best-practice nursing care.
