Suggested Course Timetable

The course timetable and content will depend on the target audience. Some groups will be more advanced than others; the core material may be tailored to meet the needs of the audience. Several schedule templates can be provided to show options in course sequence and weighting material. The course director may choose the schedule that best suits the target audience.

The goals of the Pediatric Advanced Life Support Course are to provide the participant with:-
* The information needed to recognise infants and children at risk for
cardiopulmonary arrest
* The information and strategies needed to prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants
and children
* The cognitive and psychomotor skills needed to resuscitate and stabilise infants and
children in respiratory failure, shock, or cardiopulmonary arrest

The course is intended for healthcare providers who are responsible for the well-being of infants and children – pediatricians, house staff, emergency physicians, family physicians, nurses, paramedical personnel, respiratory therapists, and others. Innovative teaching methods that meet the needs of the participants are encouraged. Lecture time is minimal so that hands-on experience is emphasised. Technical skills and information are first taught separately in 1 hour small-group sessions. Practical application of skills and knowledge in critical situations is then emphasised in case presentations, first in large group discussions called “integration sessions” and then at small-group teaching and evaluation stations. Course usually conducted over two days.
