COVID-19 Resources for Pediatric Educators

PLS-Specific Information

Pediatric Learning Solutions has created recommended education to assist with the transition of clinicians to units unfamiliar to them due to the evolving challenges of COVID-19 spread. The focus of these online course bundles is twofold: 

  1. Preparing ambulatory clinicians for inpatient work in acute settings.
  2. Preparing acute care staff to move to critical care settings.

The education bundles were created with a broad focus in mind and align with core competencies needed in Acute Care and Critical Care Setting.

Hospital-Shared Online Materials and Additional Tools

Educators at PLS participating children's hospitals met virtually to discuss challenges and resources for handling the COVID-19 crisis. Resources they shared include: 

  • Society of Critical Care Medicine – free online courses: Assessment of Critically Ill Child, Acute Respiratory Failure and Mechanical Ventilation, and Cardiovascular Evaluation and Pediatric Shock
