    (APLS) Simulator–Mediated Advanced Pediatric Life Support
    Target Audience: Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics

    4480 Oak Street
    Vancouver, BC
    Canada V6H3N1

    Designed to train physicians to assess and manage critically ill children during the first hour in the emergency  department. The aim is to help the clinician detect an imminently toxic child and institute treatment without delay. The course  consists of presentations, simulator-mediated practical skills stations, and case-based discussions. The presentations include pediatric assessment, maltreatment, surgical emergencies,  orthopedic trauma, and common toxins and poisons. The skills covered include assisted and mechanical ventilation, advanced airway, vascular access intraosseous and central, and chemical electrical cardioversion. The discussions entail respiratory emergencies, shock, Central Nervous System problems, pediatric  trauma, and neonatal emergencies.

    This APLS course is unique in North America as it incorporates the  simulator in the skills stations and small group discussions. The participants will work in teams on a pediatric and a neonatal  simulator to resuscitate critically ill children and neonates in various real life scenarios. The 2011 resuscitation guidelines will be introduced and practiced in the simulated scenarios.

    Required preparatory work involves pre-reading The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Resource, Fifth Edition.

    Upon successful completion of the course, the participant will receive the American College of Emergency Medicine (ACEP) Certificate.  In order to obtain the ACEP certificate, the participant is required to attend all didactic and small group sessions and achieve 70% on the end-of-the-course written examination. APLS is accredited for MOC Section 2/Traineeship. The CFPC recognizes the APLS program for Mainpro-C credits. Participants who complete the program of study but do not pass the certification examination may still claim Mainpro-M1 credits for the classroom component of the program.

    Registration Fees: $949

This two-day course starts with a review of the primary and secondary surveys and initial resuscitation including ample time to practice applying concepts learned. Delivery of the course consists of team-based  simulation sessions, which are interspersed with short, small group, interactive case-based or didactic sessions and technical skills  sessions for practicing procedures. Topics include head injury, airway management, upper body injuries, abdominal trauma, imaging interpretation and much more. 

A certified instructor is provided for each module. The participant to instructor ratio is typically 6:1 or lower during the technical skills and simulation sessions.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recall the differences between adult and child pathophysiology.
  • Conduct a primary and secondary survey for pediatric trauma cases.
  • Recognize, diagnose and manage common trauma related pediatric injuries.
  • Discuss ethical issues related to pediatric trauma.
