LTLC have now launched four paediatric digital skills passports, which have been endorsed by the Paediatric Critical Care Society (PCCS). We ask that you share this information and raise awareness of the passports with your colleagues and use / implement as you see fit. They are designed to support you to understand, document and acquire new skills to support the safe delivery of care to children in a surge model of care. These passports are for use in a surge and should not replace the ‘business as usual’ development of staffs’ skills and knowledge.
Who are the passports for?
Four passports are available for the following staff groups working with critical care paediatric patients (levels 1, 2 and 3):
