This multidisciplinary symposium seeks to provide education in the benefits of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) for management of critically ill children. Facilitated practical stations will introduce basic ultrasound skills. We invite all providers involved in the care of critically ill children including nurses, respiratory therapists, advanced practice providers and physicians who wish to gain understanding about point of care ultrasound and its use in pediatric critical care.

For first-time PALS certification or renewal. HeartCode is an appropriate alternative for experienced pediatric healthcare providers who are comfortable with computer simulation, and may have class-time limitations. As a first-time PALS course, it is a good option for experienced providers practicing PALS in their daily work. Part 1 provides online self-paced learning (average 4–8 hours), interactive case simulation and a written exam. In the half-day Part 2, participants practice and test team leader and team member skills using case scenarios. Completion of Part 1 is required for participation in Part 2.
Join experts from Seattle Children’s and the community who will present evidence-based recommendations on commonly occurring medical and mental health issues. You will gain practical tips and tools, resources and information to better serve children with special healthcare needs and their families in your practice setting. Course content this year includes new best practices in concussion management, urinary catheterization, substance use disorder, pediatric anxiety and care coordination across care settings. Please check back for more information and registration in the fall.
