Common Childhood Illnesses Training (3 hours)
All children experience common illnesses as part of growing up. When children are together there is the opportunity for the spread of a number of childhood diseases that can be passed on from one child to the next. Early recognition of illness or infestation and prompt treatment can significantly reduce the spread of infection within the group setting.
Our fun and interactive training programmes are delivered by highly experienced Registered Nurses who combine real life experience with evidence based practice.
