Neonatal Resuscitation Program

Course Date:  Multiple

Course Location: Center for Innovative Learning, 3024 New Bern Ave, Raleigh, NC 27610

Prerequisite: Certificate of Completion of Online NRP Exam within 30 days of course start date.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an educational program jointly sponsored with the American Heart Association (AHA). The course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn to hospital staff who care for newborns at the time of delivery, including physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists. Since the inception of the NRP in 1987, over 3 million individuals in the United States and a countless number of individuals abroad have been trained in NRP. The 6th Edition, released in 2011, is based on simulation methodology, enhancing development of critical leadership, communication and team work skills.

 S.T.A.B.L.E. is the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention and recall of information, S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessment and care modules in the program: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support. A seventh module, Quality Improvement stresses the professional responsibility of improving and evaluating care provided to sick infants.
First introduced in 1996 in the US and Canada, S.T.A.B.L.E. has grown internationally to include instructor training and courses in more than 45 countries. Currently, there are more than 3,400 registered instructors worldwide and more than 274,000 neonatal healthcare providers have completed a S.T.A.B.L.E. Learner course.

Welcome to SIM City. In the advancement of medical education, we strive to provide the most unique learning environments for our students and faculty alike. With change comes development of both cognitive and didactic skills. It is these skills that will shape how we educate in the field of medicine for years to come. Utilizing a unique blast approach to deliver information, educators from all over the country will provide the latest trends in simulation-based education and the data to support this growing desire for technology-based education. While understanding why we are here is important, we are often trying to answer "how do I get there." The afternoon break-out sessions have been designed to answer that exact question. You will have the opportunity to choose a track allowing you to have open cross-institutional brainstorming and sharing of ideas. Everyone is a pioneer in simulation! Let us learn from each other, teach others about our experience, and show the value of simulation to our students.
