Since the introduction of the menC vaccine in the UK, reported cases of meningococcal disease have fallen considerably.
- As a result, levels of disease experience amongst medical staff have also declined.
- The disease still exists, and typically follows an extremely rapid progressive course
- It is therefore essential that staff members retain the ability to recognize and effectively manage cases of meningococcal disease as they present in A&E Departments
- Delegates will have the opportunity to manage 3 realistic scenarios, each simulating a different way that meningococcal sepsis may present.
- Training will be provided through high fidelity simulation, by consultants with extensive experience in the management of meningococcal sepsis.
- Informative, non-confrontational debriefing sessions will follow each scenario.
This training has been supported by Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics Limited. Attendance at this simulation training will be enhanced by completion of the e-learning course “Bacterial Meningitis and Meningococcal Septicaemia in Children” developed by the RCPCH and supported by Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics Ltd: http://rcpch.learningpool.com/
