Course description

The Pediatric First Five Minutes course is designed primarily for non-critical care pediatric nurses to develop confidence, technical and critical thinking skills needed to recognize and respond to an unstable pediatric patient. The main focus is prevention. Utilizing case scenarios and incorporation of a simulation-based methodology, students can see and hear critically ill children, developing skills in recognizing pediatric distress signs and symptoms and thus begin patient stabilization prior to arrest. An important secondary goal of this course is to develop teamwork and communication skills.
