EPIC is the SPANZA special interest group for SPANZA Members with an interest in reducing peri-procedural anxiety and distress.
EPIC is the Effective Peri-Procedural Communication interest group within SPANZA. EPIC aims to provide language, communication and imaginative techniques for every child, every time they have a medical procedure. The EPIC workshops teach these techniques to help health professionals engage with children and their families and enhance their ability to manage medical procedures.
The learning on the course is interactive and experiential. Background knowledge is provided prior to the course in an e-learning format which covers the basic principles and provides examples of techniques used. These techniques will then be taught experientially on the course. Access to the e-learning course will be opened 2 weeks prior to the workshops.
