Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS) Course
The PEARS Provider Course prepares healthcare providers caring for pediatric patients with foundational skills to assess, recognize and participate in the initial management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest. Active case-based instruction will be used to teach students to provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes after response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider.
Who should attend:
This course is for healthcare professionals and others who might encounter pediatric emergency situations during their work, including physicians and nurses not specializing in pediatrics, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, EMS, respiratory therapists, prehospital and in-facility healthcare providers (outside of critical-care areas), outpatient clinic staff, school-based providers and any other healthcare professional who infrequently sees critically ill or injured infants and children.
