Paediatric First Aid changes 2017

There are a few changes in the new year for First Aid per Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage.
For the Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid (Unit 1, 6 hr course) there is a slight increase in emphasis on personal protective equipment, the contents of the first aid kit and administering first aid relating to bites, stings and minor injuries.  
Anaphylaxis has been moved to Unit 2 which makes up the Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) (12 hr course).  Stings, bites and minor injuries have moved into the first unit as mentioned above.   Shock focuses more on the recognition and treatment of massive blood loss (hypovolemic).  Sickle cell coverage has been removed from Unit 2 along with the need to identify and record illnesses.
