Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization

The Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS) course is designed for healthcare providers who DO NOT routinely resuscitate infants and children. This course is designed for providers that would NOT typically take the more advanced PALS course and  can be attended by all levels of staff members, including the credentials held by most ambulatory care staff (CNAs, CMAs, mid-levels, RNs, etc.).  

The PEARS course curriculum helps team members identify and manage respiratory problems, shock, and cardiac arrest.   Participants also get hands on practice with the type of emergency equipment used in their practice setting.  One unique aspect of the course is that videos of actual pediatric patients experiencing acute changes in condition are used during the entire course as well as during the written exam.   This type of “live” scenario based learning provides more reality for the learner.

Prerequisites for all PEARS Classes

1. Participants must have a current AHA BLS provider card (if class taken outside WFBH, fax a copy of the card to (336)716-5927 with note stating  which class you registered for). 
2. Participants must have a current PEARS Provider Manual.
