We recognize that first responders are a critical part of the emergency care our pediatric patients receive. In order to help obtain the best outcomes, we have a range of training and education programs designed specifically for pediatric emergency service providers and first responders in our 20-country region. We strive to provide exceptional educational training to those who care for children in emergency situations.
