    About Emergency Pediatric Care, Fourth Edition
    Each year in the United States, approximately 1.6 million pediatric patients are transported by ambulance to an emergency department, and millions more are cared for around the globe. Because pediatric prehospital patient care is considered low-frequency, high-acuity care, it is vital for practitioners to refresh and update their clinical knowledge, practice psychomotor skills, and apply critical thinking to potential patient presentations to ensure these skills are ready to be applied when a pediatric call is received.

    Emergency Pediatric Care, Fourth Edition is the next step in the evolution of this critical continuing education course. The EPC Course uses a specialized version of the Pediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals, Fourth Edition as the reference text, bundled with a course manual. This course manual is an engaging resource that can continue to be consulted after the course to assist practitioners in providing the best care for their young patients.

    A Family-Centered Approach to Pediatric Care
    NAEMT's EPC program serves pediatric patients through the global education of prehospital care practitioners of all levels. The EPC program promotes excellence in pediatric patient management by all practitioners involved in the delivery of prehospital care. The main goal of the EPC course is not just to assure that EMS practitioners can take better care of ill and injured children. It also recognizes that almost every pediatric call revolves around the needs of not only the child, but also the child's caregivers.
