About this Event

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Recertification including Basic Life Support (BLS) Recertification

The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course uses a series of hands-on skill stations and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, high-quality basic life support skills, advanced life support treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
