All caregivers need to know how to manage minor injuries as well as what to do in an emergency.
In this course, the term caregiver is used to include child care providers, teachers, school nurses, relatives and others who care for children.
Usually first aid is intended to keep the child’s medical condition from becoming worse.
It does not take the place of proper medical treatment. In some situations, caregivers may need to provide first aid until
EMS arrives and a medical provider, or the patient/guardian assumes responsibility for the child’s medical care.
Intended Audience: Child Care Providers, Teachers, School Nurses, General Public, Day Care Providers, Coaches
