A new one takes place on Saturday 20 April 2024 at our headquarters in Amsterdam Zuid workshop in Italian dedicated to training in the field of Pediatric First Aid. We have been organizing this workshop for several years to offer parents and adults of Italian mother tongue living in the Netherlands an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to deal with emergency situations involving newborns and children with more serenity.
Here are some reasons why this type of training is important:
- Timely intervention: Children are more vulnerable to accidents and illnesses, so it is essential to know how to intervene promptly and correctly in an emergency, even in unexpected situations such as at home, at school or in public places.
- Prevention of complications: Prompt treatment in an emergency can prevent a child's condition from worsening and can reduce the risk of short- and long-term complications.
- Reduction of anxiety and fear: Correct training in pediatric first aid offers confidence and competence to adults who care for children, reducing anxiety and allowing them to deal with the situation in a more calm and effective way.
- Preliminary professional support: In some situations, professional help may not be immediately available. Pediatric first aid can ensure that the child receives adequate care until medical professionals arrive.
- Safety promotion: The pediatric first aid course also provides information on prevention, tools to keep at home and numbers to call. This helps create a safer environment at home, school and other places.
The presence of babies and children at the meeting is not expected, but participants who need to find a babysitter can coordinate with the other people registered through the Stivaletto whatsapp group which is created a few weeks before the workshop.
