Twitter Chat News - February Twitter Chat 

Last Friday we continued our monthly BACCN twitter chats when we discussed all things paediatrics related and the crossover for many adult practitioners when called upon to assist with the care and management of the critically ill/deteriorating child.  Critically ill children continue to present at their local hospital and the multidisciplinary team will need skills onsite for stabilisation and initial intensive care management.  All critical care staff may be required to provide occasional support for the resuscitation and even transfer of critically ill children that present at centres without a PICU. 

We would like to thank @TrishMcready for moderating this chat and all those that joined us on a Friday evening sharing their lived experience in this particular area of Critical Care Nursing.  It was great to see how organisations attempt to breach the gap in training to ensure practitioners have the necessary education (via APLS / EPLS) courses, simulation training and Study Days in conjunction with their local Paediatric Intensive Care centres / Paediatric Transfer Teams to ensure we provide up to date evidence-based safe care to not just the children in our care but also their loved ones.  

Missed the chat? Have a look at our Wakelet summary of the nights' discussions: 

Join us on the 23rd of March between 7-8pm when we'll be discussing "Staff moves across the Organisation".

Let's keep the conversation going....
