Pediatric Medical Outreach

The following outline our medical education outreach opportunities and programs.  We provide classes on the Blank Children's Hospital campus, and also provide classes on your campus:

Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC)

The Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course is designed to provide nurses with core pediatric knowledge and skills necessary when caring for the ill or injured child. The goal of ENPC is to enhance nurses' ability to rapidly and accurately assess the pediatric patient. Course content is presented using a combination of lectures and psychomotor skill stations.

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)

This course provides training for physicians, nurses and paramedics in pediatric advanced life support. It focuses on recognizing the most common causes of trauma and the special treatment required for pediatric patients. It also enables the provider to develop priorities in the management of shock, respiratory failure and cardiac arrest.

Pediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition & Stabilization (PEARS)

This course is designed to help the basic pediatric health care provider develop the knowledge and skills necessary for emergency assessment and treatment of seriously ill or injured children. 

Pediatric Topics

A number of general topics on pediatric issues are available for presentation. Specific topics can be discussed upon request.

Visiting Nurse Experience

Many nurses tell us they do not feel comfortable taking care of kids because they just do not see many in their day-to-day practice. That is why we are pleased to offer the Visiting Nurse Experience.

We would like to invite you to visit the Blank Children's Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department, Inpatient Pediatric Unit, NICU or Iowa Methodist Medical Center's Maternity Unit and spend some time with us. Our goal is for you to experience how we deliver care for children, equip you with new skills to compliment your own and increase your confidence to care for children in your community. View our handout.
