In October 2020 the latest evidence-based adult, paediatric and neonatal advanced life support updates were released. We at EMTG are proud to be able to host the new AHA PALS

course. We will be supported by AHA Regional Faculty via Zoom link. This a very rare opportunity.


Dates for this 2 day course are:


February 24th and 25th



PALS Provider Course


The AHA’s PALS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2020 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. This classroom, Instructor-led course uses a series of videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS 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. This is the International English (IVE) version of the PALS Course. IVE training materials have been updated to include metric units of measure and other references that do not apply to students in the US and Canada.

This course is intended for audiences outside of the U.S.


The IVE Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Precourse Self-Assessment evaluates a student’s knowledge before the course to evaluate proficiency and determine the need for additional review and practice. The IVE PALS Precourse Work involves a student reviewing course content through online videos before entering the classroom.

Summary

How Does this Course Work? The IVE PALS Precourse Self-Assessment is an online tool that evaluates a student’s knowledge before the course to evaluate their proficiency and determine the need for additional review and practice. The student must complete the Precourse Self-Assessment and achieve a score of at least 70% before taking the PALS Course. The student must print their successful completion certificate and bring it with them to class. The IVE PALS Precourse Work involves a student reviewing course content through online videos before entering the classroom. The video lessons cover multiple medical subjects and each lesson includes questions to engage the student. This prework allows more classroom time for hands-on skills training and leads to the student being better prepared to participate as soon as they enter the classroom.
