The APLS course focuses on the core knowledge needed to provide care to critically ill and injured children in the Emergency Department.

About this Event

Developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Advanced Pediatric Life Support (APLS) course focuses on the core knowledge needed to provide care to critically ill and injured children in the emergency department environment. In this one-day, simulation based course, participants will work in teams to complete simulated resuscitations of pediatric patients. Scenarios will attempt to accurately reflect presentations that may be seen in community emergency departments. Emphasis will be on hands on practice in a high-fidelity simulated environment. The topics include initial assessment, PALS life support, airway emergencies, respiratory failure, shock, maltreatment, ER radiology, surgical emergencies, trauma, transport, and toxicological and metabolic emergencies.

APLS Participants are generally emergency physicians, rural practitioners, pediatricians, emergency and pediatric nurses and respiratory therapists. Senior trainees in pediatrics, family practice and emergency medicine are also welcome. Course instruction will be by Physicians and RN’s certified and experienced in Pediatric Critical Care and Resuscitation. We all enjoy working with adult learners and are excited to learn from and with you as we share our experience, tips and knowledge.

COST: Physicians - $550 ; RNs (PICU and ED only) and RRTs (VGH only) are free of charge. *Note: course does not include the APLS textbook, 5th edition (see below)

AAP ($95.95 - $119.95 USD): https://shop.aap.org/apls-pediatric-emergency-medicine-resource-5th-edition-hardcover/

Physicians who wish to receive formal APLS certification will be required to complete a multiple choice exam and review several chapters of the textbook independently prior to the course day. More details to follow at time of registration.
