Why do we have a Return to Acute Clinical Practice in Paediatrics Course?
Returning to acute clinical practice whether it is post maternity leave, research, OOPE or career break is daunting for the best of us. There is the worry that your clinical knowledge is rusty, your resuscitation skills are not up-to-scratch and that new changes in paediatrics and training have passed you by. Add to that any number of possible stressful factors: a new baby, a PhD to finish writing up, the challenges of working part-time, dealing with ongoing health issues, juggling academia and on-call rotas etc etc it is no wonder that many health professionals find the transition difficult. BUT… help is at hand with our latest course!
