HeartCode PALS has been designed to aid the pediatric healthcare provider in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently evaluate and effectively manage seriously ill infants and children. HeartCode PALS online is a web-based, self-directed program that teaches healthcare providers knowledge and skills needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children. Using eSimulation technology, students assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings where they can apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning about pediatric advanced life support.
Once enrolled in Heartcode PALS through Gritman’s HealthStream Learning Center, students can access the self-paced course anytime from any computer. Once a student has finished the online HealthStream portion of the course, which may take eight hours for PALS, they must schedule a time with Gritman’s Education Department to complete a hands-on skills check off on voice assisted computerized manikins. Skills Check off for PALS takes about 30 minutes. Checkoffs are scheduled individually during normal business hours.
