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 table-top exercise.
