Initial Certification Provider Course
The PALS course is designed for healthcare professionals who initiate and direct advanced life support in pediatric emergencies and for healthcare students seeking a first-time PALS-training credentials.
The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider course enables healthcare professionals to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to better recognize and treat critically ill infants and children. The course materials are scenario-based, and a team approach is used to teach emergency management of pediatric patients approaching or already in respiratory or cardiac arrest, from the early minutes through patient stabilization n and/or the transport phases of a pediatric emergency, in or out of the hospital. The instructor, Scott DeBoer, has entertaining and helpful videos, real-life case studies, and a unique game show style test review session that is sure to leave attendees feeling more confident in their pediatric skills and able to pass their PALS Exam.
