Conquering Pediatric Resuscitation: Combined APLS/PALS Pediatric Emergency Medicine Course

This course has been postponed. Please join the interest list to be notified when it has been rescheduled.

 

Course Overview

Pre-Course Work Requirements

Course participants will need to complete the following PALS pre-course work requirements:

  1. Successful completion of the PALS science and resuscitation videos
  2. Successful completion of the PALS exam

Course participants will be given an online access code to the AHA Learning Management System to complete these tasks. Course participants will need to bring their pre-course work completion certificate to the onsite course to verify completion of these items. 

See registration tab for information regarding course materials. 

STATEMENT OF NEED

Given the increase in the acuity of pediatric patient care census, it is imperative for emergency and community physicians to have access to a state of the art simulation APLS and PALS combined course.  It is now widely recognized that children are not simply small adults and that specialty training to care for this population is expected and required.  This course addresses knowledge and skill set gaps through didactic presentations, hands-on procedure training and simulations with the latest equipment in order for health providers to be better prepared to care for pediatric emergencies. 

As pediatric simulation courses are not widely available, it is important to couple this powerful methodology with the content and knowledge base of the APLS and PALS courses.  This is the first course to combine APLS and PALS certification.  It includes cognitive, technical and behavioral skills combining all aspects of patient care in a realistic, time pressured setting.  

TARGET AUDIENCE

This national conference is designed to meet the educational needs of Emergency Medicine Physicians, Urgent Care Physicians, Pediatricians and Hospitalists.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop strategies to manage pediatric emergencies based on the 2010 AHA Guidelines.
  • Utilize technical skills when responding to pediatric emergencies including bag mask ventilation, endotracheal intubation removal, intraosseous access, and lumbar puncture.
  • Develop strategies to utilize Crisis Resource Management (CRM) skills during debriefing in the simulated and clinical patient care environment.
