Memorial Hospital 3073 White Mountain Highway, North Conway, NH

This is a North Country Nurse Education Consortium (NCNEC) sponsored event

While trauma is the leading cause of death in children, acute illness is also a source of unnecessary pediatric death. Emergency care visits by infants, children and adolescents account for more than 31 million emergency department visits each year. In the United States, it is estimated that one pediatric patient per second seeks emergency care, and the majority of these pediatric patients are seen in general emergency departments.  In many instances, preventable pediatric deaths are the result of delayed recognition and treatment by emergency department personnel where proper intervention may have prevented these outcomes. For more information about this course go to the Emergency Nurses Association webpage.  To register for this course complete the registration form  and return to Gail Wasiewski, 236 South Main Street - Newmarket , New Hampshire 03857.
