PEARS - Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization Course
Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS) is designed for healthcare providers and first responders who provide care to patients in a wide variety of settings and is ideal for emergency medical services staff, general practitioners, paramedic or nursing students who have completed their clinical rotation, as well as respiratory therapists, physiotherapists and medical, surgical, school or community nurses.
The PEARS Provider course equips participants with skills to participate in the initial management of respiratory and shock emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest until the child is transferred to advanced life support care. This is an intermediate pediatric skills course that builds on BLS concepts and can be a stepping stone towards certification in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). Participants will learn a systematic approach to pediatric assessment and response and will gain confidence in decision-making and applying effective team dynamics.
