Southeastern Med offers PALS primary and update provider courses through Nationwide Children’s Hospital American Heart Association’s (AHA) Training Center.
The AHA Pediatric Advanced Life Support classroom, instructor-led course uses a series of videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. The 2016 PALS course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
Target audience: For healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units, such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
Course offerings: PALS Primary Provider Course is a two-day course. PALS Provider Update course is a one-day renewal course that is appropriate for providers that have a current PALS provider card or one that has expired within six months.
