Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
The program is designed for healthcare professionals who need Pediatric Advanced Life Support training for their clinical duties. Utilizing a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, Cognitive Assessment Activities, illustrations, knowledge checks and interactive activities, this program teaches PALS knowledge and skills. This method of learning provides training consistency and adaptability to different learning styles. Students can work at their own pace applying their knowledge to real-time decision making. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each knowledge check and each Cognitive Assessment Activity.
Topics covered in this course are:
- High-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- Differentiation between patients who do require and do not require immediate interventions
- Performance as a high-performance team member
- Differentiation between respiratory distress and respiratory failure
- Management of respiratory distress and respiratory failure
