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.

Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP):
We are pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Michael Garron Hospital (previously Toronto East General Hospital), we are now offering our clients the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). This 4-hour renewal course is run by our PALS/PEARS/NRP Instructor Tanya Levit. NRP deals with neonates from newly born to 1 month. This course is ideal if you work in obstetrics, NICU, or the Emergency Department. NRP is an educational program that introduces the concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation. In Canada, NRP is administered by the Canadian Paediatric Society and is designed to teach individuals and teams that may be required to resuscitate newborn babies.
If you see a date that you would like to attend, please email our administrator, Diana Curphey at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
