Are you a healthcare provider who’s new to Heart & Stroke’s PALS courses or who doesn’t use your PALS skills or knowledgeoften? Then our PALS Provider course is for you.
PALS Provider Renewal (Instructor Led Course)
Our PALS Provider course will help you to develop individual skills – as a member of a healthcare team – in simulated real-life situations that mirror your work life in which you’ll need to recognize and respond to cardiopulmonary arrests or other cardiovascular emergencies involving pediatric patients.
These simulations will involve high-quality CPR, high-performance team dynamics and communication, and a systematic approach to pediatric assessment that includes the evaluate-identify-intervene sequence. You will be able to reinforce concepts, undertake skills practice, receive coaching and correction, and refine your abilities before final testing.
This course is offered in two learning formats: the more traditional classroom-based teaching led by one of our instructors; or the blended learning format in which you delve into parts of the curriculum on your own time and at your own pace and then take the instructor-led, in-classroom component when you’re ready. You can choose the format that suits your learning style best.
