Primary Care Regional Training Event for the Management of Children and Young People’s Wheeze & Asthma

After discussion with local providers, Health Education East Midlands leaders and CCG GP children’s leads plus the Children’s Emergency Department (CED) teams in Leicester, Derby and Nottingham Children’s EDs and Hospitals a preliminary event was planned for 23 November 2016.

The event was planned to:-
· Offer small group teaching to GPs and Practice nurses
· Condition specific focus - asthma and wheeze
· Clinical scenario based teaching delivered by senior children’s ED staff and GPs – establishing local links

Overall aims:
· To improve care and safety for CYP in East Midlands
· To identify those in need of urgent care from a Children’s Emergency department (CED)
· To defer unnecessary ED attendances
· To update and refresh the knowledge of our East Midlands health care providers

The event was funded by the East Midlands Children’s Network; there were no delegate fees and no speaker fees.

The event was fully booked within weeks of advertisement and was attended by twenty-five GPs and eight practice nurses. Evaluation was excellent with 97% of respondents scoring as good or excellent and with many of the delegates confirming they would be keen to attend similar events in the future.
