Taking Pediatric Training on the Road: At Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children we are passionate about education for healthcare providers and our community. Our Outreach Education goal is to keep the community safe by establishing partnerships with all healthcare providers, offering personalized, high quality education, to ensure the best pediatric care. Together we can improve children’s medical outcomes through education and simulation training. Our outreach program travels throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Western Nebraska, and Western Kansas.
Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children Mobile Training Center
Our fully equipped mobile simulation RV has an ER/hospital room and an ambulance. We offer simulation training for hospital staff, EMS, school nurses, and athletic trainers. We can train teams individually or offer combined training, where we run simulations from the field, to the ambulance and then transfer care to the ER. Utilizing high-fidelity simulation manikins (pregnant, adolescent, child, newborn, and a preemie) we can offer a wide-range of clinical functionality, promoting critical thinking and teaching stabilization skills for airway, breathing and circulation.
Pediatric, Newborn, OB/Postpartum Hot Topics
Hot Topics are be tailored to your team’s specific educational needs. Topics include, but are not limited to: introduction to pediatrics, assessment techniques, IV therapy, respiratory management, OB complications and crises, emergency care, resuscitation, and basic fetal monitoring.
MD Lunch and Learn
Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children has more than 300 subspecialists, who provide CME lectures. Physicians and advanced practice practitioners meet over lunch to discuss a topic of your team’s interest. Additional CME Offerings can be found on HealthONEUniversity.com
Clinical Guest Experience
Healthcare providers (Nurses, RT’s, EMS) have the opportunity to have hands on learning experiences in our high-risk OB department, Neonatal ICU, Pediatric ICU, Pediatric ER, and Pediatric Medical/Surgical Unit.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program® (NRP®) conveys an evidence-based approach to emergency care for the newborn, and facilitates effective team-based care for healthcare providers.
STABLE Provider Course
The STABLE program is designed to serve as a general guideline for the stabilization, and if needed, transportation of neonates post-delivery. The program uses the mnemonic to focus on sugar, temperature, airway, blood pressure, lab work and emotional support.
Pediatric Advanced Life Support course improves the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, by reinforcing important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics.
Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization course: Designed for healthcare providers that infrequently see critically ill children. PEARS prepares a student to assess, categorize, decide and act early to stabilize the child. Key topics reviewed are recognition and management of an abnormal pediatric assessment, respiratory compromise, circulatory compromise, and shock.
DOC/EMS STABLE Provider Course
Condensed STABLE program, for physicians/mid-level providers and Paramedics. This course also includes a hands-on skills lab reviewing intubation practice, umbilical line placement, needle decompression for pneumothorax, and chest tube placement.
AWHONN Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring
A two-day certification course, focusing on the application of essential fetal heart monitoring knowledge and skills in intrapartum OB practice. It promotes integration of knowledge and skills essential to assessment, promotion and evaluation of fetal well-being during labor. Prerequisite- Basic Fetal Monitoring Hot Topic.
