Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is a video-based, Instructor-led, advanced course, that focuses on a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
The Heart and Stroke Foundations PALS Course offers:
- The latest resuscitation science for improved patient outcomes
- Enriched course content, including simulations, state-of-the-art 3-D animations, video scenarios and thought-provoking examples of real pediatric emergency cases, engaging students in robust dialogue and confirming their understanding of the educational material they have received.
- Enhanced features that provide course flexibility, by allowing instructors to incorporate local protocols into their training, while still ensuring that all learning objectives are met.
The Heart and Stroke Foundations Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest in pediatric patients, as well as others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
It is highly recommended that only those who will use the skills of PALS within their scope of practice take the PALS Course. All students who meet the prerequisites and successfully pass the PALS course will receive a course completion card. Receipt of a course completion card does not grant permission to practice the skills learned.
