Paediatric Medications: Increasing Compliance
We’ve all had trouble getting our paediatric patients to take their medicine from time to time but did you know that there are a few ways that you can encourage the child’s compliance even if they don’t like the taste?
Brooke is the Founding Director The Paediatric Nurse in addition to being a Registered Nurse, qualified Primary Teacher, children’s advocate and author. Brooke founded ‘The Paediatric Nurse’ website in 2015 before developing it into an online continuing professional development website for Paediatric Nurses in August 2018.
She is passionate about giving children a voice in healthcare and works tirelessly towards encouraging others to further develop their child and family-centred care approaches.
Brooke joined the Advisory Board for the Standish Foundation in 2018 – a charitable organisation that promotes child & family centred care and empowers healthcare professionals through the provision of funding & resources- and has had the pleasure of joining them on a medical mission to Cambodia.
Previously, Brooke also sat on the Board of Directors for the Association for the Well-being of Children in Healthcare, Australia and held the Vice President position in 2017.
Brooke is eager to transform the paediatric healthcare experience through improving access to quality CPD for paediatric nurses and by empowering parents accessing paediatric healthcare for their children. While continuing with The Paediatric Nurse, she will continue with her Masters degree in 2020.
