Overview

ACoRN is a program designed to teach neonatal stabilization, support the multidisciplinary team, and identify and care for babies who become unwell or are at risk of becoming unwell in the first few hours or days after birth.

ACoRN uses a logical and systematic approach, as well as innovative learning tools and decision-making algorithms to: 
• Gather and organize information
• Establish priorities
• Intervene appropriately

Skills Gained

  • ACoRN introduces knowledge and skills sequentially, using a case-based approach.  It is designed to be useful regardless of a condition’s complexity or how frequently a practitioner is called upon to manage specific conditions. 
  • The ACoRN workshop is an interactive session that utilizes a skill-based, tool-based, case-based approach to learning. Simulations are an integral component of the workshop including home and clinic case examples.
  • Learn how to integrate the ACoRN Sequence into your practice– this systematic approach guides your newborn assessment to enable you to provide appropriate support while organizing and conferring with the right team members.  
  • Like resuscitation, stabilization of the at-risk or unwell newborn is most effective when performed by a coordinated, interprofessional team. Pass this information along to your colleagues in medicine and nursing.
