Pediatric Prehospital Care (PPC)
PPC is an in-depth, scenario-based study of the prehospital care of injured and ill children. Emphasizing a pragmatic approach, PPC teaches providers using problem-focused, assessment-based methods, while concentrating on what they need to know. The curriculum is designed to maximize the preparation of EMS providers in the care of common pediatric emergencies, as well as those less common, highly critical situations that challenge skills and abilities.
