The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program - March 12, 2024

Danville, PA US
March 12, 2024

This is a live, in-person educational activity. The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program® educational course provides didactic, video and conversational opportunities to learn about post-resuscitation care of sick and premature newborns prior to transport of the infant to a higher-level Intensive Care Nursery.  The activity designed is to reach healthcare providers of many disciplines and deliver a platform that learners can use to develop, organize, and carry out a systematic method of assessment and stabilization skills to ensure the sick newborn patient has the best opportunity for good outcomes. This activity provides a framework of skills covering several key components, including glucose management, thermal regulation, and respiratory management, among others, that health care providers responsible for the initial management of these sick patients can use.   

Target Audience

This activity is designed for perinatal, pediatric and emergency physicians, OB nurses, respiratory therapists and EMS pre-hospital providers.  Other learner groups such as emergency department, obstetrical technicians, medical students and nursing students would also benefit from this education.
