PEARS is designed for healthcare providers who see pediatric patients but do not take PALS because it is beyond their scope of practice. The main focus of PEARS is prevention and, specifically, the assessment, recognition and stabilization of pediatric victims at risk for shock, respiratory distress and cardiopulmonary failure. The course includes video-based instruction, instructor-led discussions and the opportunity for participants to practice assessment, recognition and stabilization skills using different scenarios in a team concept environment.

STABLE is the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention and recall of information, STABLE stands for the six assessments and care modules in the program: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support of the family. Participants include RNs, ARNPs, physicians, respiratory therapists, physician assistants and any other healthcare providers who have the potential for post-resuscitation care and/or pre-transport stabilization of neonatal patients in the acute care setting.

The American Heart Association 2012 edition Heart Code PALS Online Part 1 is perfect for the experienced pediatric healthcare provider with savvy computer simulation skills and who has class time limitations. It is an appropriate option for the PALS Renewal Course. The online portion takes 6–12 hours. The Part 2 in-class Practical Evaluation for skills and team approach time is 3.5 hours. Because, at this time, our Seattle Children’s computers do not support the minimum strength of system, you need to have access to a personal or alternate work computer. At this time Seattle Children’s contract nurses will continue to register for the one-day PALS Renewal Course.
