In 2010, he changed focus and joined the Pediatric Critical Care Transport Team at Ornge. Jonathan’s background in medical education includes roles with several services and basehospitals; he is currently involved in delivering both classroom and clinical education in Georgian College’s Paramedic Program.

Session: Ouchies and Owies: Pediatric Analgesia.
Prehospital pediatrics can be challenging at the best of times, and no one wants to see a child who hurts. Please join me for a uniquely pediatric approach to assessing and managing pain. Topics include a review of the evidence for narcotic, non-narcotic and non-pharmaceutical analgesia as well as a look at prehospital specific pain literature. Regardless of your level of care, you will find something in this session to make your next pediatric patient’s trip much more comfortable!
