First aid workshops for parents & grandparents
Would you know what to do if your child suffered a medical emergency
As a parent we are not given a “parent guide” when children are born. On the whole we consider our homes as safe places which they are, however accidents usually happen in or around the home.
More than two million children under the age of 15 experience accidents in and around the home every year and are taken to hospital. Many more are treated by GPs and by parents and carers.
On average 62 children under the age of five died as a result of an accident and over 76.000 under the age of 14 are admitted for treatment of which over 40% are under 5 years of age. Those most at risk from a home accident are the 0-4 years age group.
Children can swallow, inhale or choke on items such as small toys, peanuts and marbles. Babies and small children are most at risk from choking because they examine things around them by putting them in their mouths.
Would you know what to do if a child had a medical emergency in your home? Most parents have no or little first aid knowledge, or the knowledge they have is out of date, education is key to the safety of all of us.
What about your first aid knowledge/skills
Prevention is better than cure, which is why at Willhan training we have developed a “bespoke “ parent and grandparent first aid workshop for any parent/ grandparent to attend.
