Paediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals (PEPP) is the leading training course on the care of children in emergency and community settings written by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Key Features of PEPP include:

- Case Studies provide an opportunity for critical thinking and encourage students to consider how they would treat a similar case in the field
- Procedures provide written step-by-step explanations and visual summaries of important basic life support and advanced life support paediatric skills
Endorsed by the United Kingdom College of Paramedics, PEPP is essential reading for any healthcare professional working with children.
