Indiana Emergency Medical Services for Children is hosting TEEX MGT-439, on March 27th and 28th, 2017. Training location is Indianapolis EMS Conference Room: 3976 Georgetown Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46254.

A 2010 report by the National Commission on Children and Disasters identified a training gap for emergency responders, first receivers, and emergency management personnel that reduced their effectiveness in responding to pediatric patients and their unique needs/considerations. This course addresses pediatric emergency planning and medical response considerations through a combination of lectures, small group exercises, and a tabletop exercise.

Topics include: 

Introduction to Pediatric Response
Emergency Management (EM) Considerations
Implications for Planning and Response
Functional Access Needs Considerations
Mass Sheltering
Pediatric Triage and Allocation of Scarce Resources
Pediatric Reunification Considerations
Pediatric Decontamination Considerations
