    Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an education program of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association that teaches concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation. Our learners study the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 7th Edition, 2016, and pass the online training prior to attending any NRP course. This allows most of the scheduled course time to be used for hands-on practice and simulation. Emphasis is placed on increasing self-efficacy, managing the unexpected and supporting the efforts and contributions of each team member. 

    The High-Risk NRP course provides more details and offers opportunity to practice advanced skills including intubation, medications and umbilical vein catheterization. In addition, the High-Risk NRP course offers simulation of complex situations like prematurity and congenital anomalies.

    Ethical issues involving children arise frequently in the surgical arena. While the core concepts of confidentiality, informed consent and respect for persons apply in the surgical realm, the application of these concepts in pediatric surgery can be challenging.

    Surgical innovation often occurs through trial and error, rather than within a clinical trial. This reality raises questions about whether some formal review process should be required prior to using an innovative technique. Solid organ transplantation raises questions about justice that rarely arise in other areas of medicine. Additionally, surgical practice involving children raises many other unique issues: Should parents be allowed to refuse a solid organ transplant? Are surgical complications different from medical errors? Should surgeons share their success rates prior to surgery? Should babies with trisomy 18 be eligible for cardiac surgery? Should innovative surgical techniques be subject to regulatory oversight?

    Join us for our 13th Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference, where we will discuss ethical issues raised in the use of surgical interventions in children.
