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:
The education bundles were created with a broad focus in mind and align with core competencies needed in Acute Care and Critical Care Setting.
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
UC Davis Simulation Resources
- Pediatric COVID-19 PICU Emergent PPE Activation Scenario
- Pediatric Infectious Intubation Checklist
- Pediatric Infectious Intubation Provider Specific Checklist
- Singapore ICU Prepping for COVID
University of Florida Health - create N95 masks from OR sterile packaging
Vocera Badge - hands-free communication tool designed to be used with PPE

“I liked that words were defined and concepts were broken down so you could understand 'why' not just 'what'."
“I appreciated the amount of info given in the scenarios and the process that needed to be thought through to reach an answer. These were some of the better online CEU's I've received.”
“I enjoyed how each topic was broken down into basic units that enhanced my understanding. I was able to get a base knowledge then use critical thinking to apply that knowledge to clinical scenarios. The overall method of instruction was beneficial for me as a supplemental resource.”
“I enjoyed that there were educational segments, followed by practice tests, then with a final exam at the end to solidify learning.”
“The knowledge checks during the module helped me to stay focused.”
“With the foundational knowledge gained though the online courses our learners come to simulation activities asking excellent questions and ready to apply critical thinking.”
