      Paediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS)

      The PEARS Provider Course prepares healthcare providers caring for paediatric patients with foundational skills to assess, recognize, and participate in the initial management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest.  Active case-based instruction will be used to teach students to provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes after response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider.

      The goal of the PEARS Provider Course is to improve outcomes for the paediatric patient by preparing healthcare providers in assessment, early recognition, prompt communication, and initial intervention in patients with respiratory emergencies, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest by using high-performance team dynamics.

      PEARS is for healthcare professionals who might encounter paediatric emergency situations during their work, including Physicians and Nurses not specializing in pediatrics or outside critical-care areas,  Nurse Practitioners, Physician assistants, EMS, Respiratory Therapists, and Outpatient clinic staff. If you work in a remote, rural, sub-urban or urban emergency department or clinic with unstable paediatric patients and want to develop more confidence in caring for these patients, this course is for you.  

      Due to the nature of the hands-on stations, this course is restricted to number of registrants per class. 

      For a detailed agenda, please contact Diana Curphey at Diana@qrsadmin.com for the PEARS e-flyer.

       

      PALS and PEARS Course size are limited: please register early.

        TRAUMA Courses

        TRAUMA COURSES: Welcome to our Trauma registration page where we have combined access to all our Trauma courses in one spot. We offer three trauma courses and a description of each is provided below: 1-Day Assessment and Management of the Adult and Paediatric Trauma Patient; Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), and Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC).  

        1-Day Assessment and Management of the Adult and Paediatric Trauma Patient: This one-day, non-stressful trauma course has been designed by QRS Educational Services for all front-line health care professionals who are working in remote rural, non-urban and non-trauma emergency departments with patients who present with trauma.This course has been developed after receiving numerous requests from staff in a wide-variety of emergency settings who wanted to be more confident in managing the trauma patient. The focus of this course will be on establishing a systematic and rapid assessment, recognizing stable vs. unstable trauma, and stabilizing of the patient presenting with airway and respiratory compromise, shock, and neurological trauma. Class size is restricted to allow opportunities for mock scenarios and demonstration on some of the emergency procedures done for patient stabilization. 

        Please contact us if you would like to schedule this one-day Adult and Paediatric Trauma course at your location.

         

        Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS): What makes the PHTLS course ideal is the fact that the course is tailored to the where the participants are working: pre-hospital EMS or Emergency departments in non-trauma hospitals and it encourages a multi-disciplinary team approach. 

        The North American Emergency Medical Technician's (NAEMT) PHTLS course is recognized around the world as the leading certification program for pre-hospital trauma care and pre-trauma centre hospital care. PHTLS is the only trauma course that promotes a multi-disciplinary approach to trauma assessment and care and is geared for emergency medical responders, EMTs, paramedics, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and NPs. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient stabilization and management by all providers involved in the delivery of pre trauma-hospital care through global education centered on the most current evidence-based research findings.  PHTLS emphasizes patient assessment, learning and application of critical life-saving skills, and stresses the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient, as a unique entity with specific needs.  PHTLS includes the management and stabilization of the adult, elderly and paediatric trauma patients.

         "The geography of our country is huge. We have highways and farms and ATV's and boat propellers.  And the further you are from a trauma centre, the more important the skills this course teaches are."  Dr. Barbara Mainville, PHTLS Supervising Medical Director, Provincial Coordinator for Ontario.

        Please contact us if you would like to schedule a PHTLS course at your location.

         

        Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC)The first few minutes of trauma care are critical to achieving better patient outcomes. The Emergency Nurses Association's  (ENA) TNCC is widely recognized as the premier course for hospitals and trauma centers worldwide, empowering nurses with the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and hands-on training to provide expert care for trauma patients. In this course you will learn about rapid identification of life-threatening injuries, comprehensive patient assessment and enhanced intervention for better patient outcomes. A variety of learning methodologies are incorporated in TNCC, including online, a textbook, interactive lecture, hands-on practice and case-based learning. 

        Please contact us if you would like to schedule a TNCC course at your location.
