I hope everyone's well, and making good use of the positive sides of this lockdown - such as the hours saved each day in not sitting in rush hour traffic! And luckily the weather's playing ball at the moment so we can all get out in our gardens. I recommend building obstacle courses with the kids in the back garden...
My wonderful Generation Tech teenagers have enabled me to run online courses via Zoom. We ran a first course a couple of nights ago and feedback has been good.
So we're going to continue running our baby / child - specific courses. Obviously you won't be able to practise CPR on manikins. But watching a demonstration, and being able to ask questions, is still going to be helpful. And of course there are other aspects to first aid.
We can certainly cover choking, which is probably the single most important part of the course, and you can practise at home on a baby-sized doll or teddy bear. And much of the baby / child course focuses around general child illness / fevers / childhood accidents and we can run all of this type of discussion very effectively, remotely.
Please get in touch if you are interested in being part of a Zoom first aid course!
