Welcome

I struggled to find PEM resources for my CT3 year, despite the variety of excellent resources out there. I hope this website will help point you in the right direction. I'm not a PEM expert, but am following the guidance CEM have issued (in the form of a syllabus) to put together this page. This page is not endorsed by CEM, and any mistakes are mine.

Please comment with corrections, additions and further suggestions.

All the information here is collected from the internet, and it might be out of date or inaccurate, so please use your judgement and adhere to your hospital's protocols. If you do notice any errors or omissions please comment so we can put them right!

To navigate, decide whether you want to start with a PMP or a PAP. You can then select which PMP or PAP you want to look at. You will then be taken to the summary page for that PMP, with links expanded topic collections. If you know what topic you want to look at already, click on the link on the right hand side.

Self Harm in Children

From a medical point of view, it is worth remembering that especially in toddlers who have a low mass, one pill can kill. Especially:
- Cardiac drugs
- Antidiabetics
- Antidepressents
- Iron, vicks, pepto - bismul (contains salicylates)

From a mental health point of view - remember to complete all safeguarding paperwork, and encourage talking and communication.


Your thorough HEADSSS assessment will help make sure all important points are covered.
