Endorsed in 2003 by the March of Dimes, The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program is the first neonatal continuing education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick newborns. S.T.A.B.L.E. targets the post-resuscitation care of sick neonates and is therefore considered by many experts to be the follow-up, complementary program to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). The program serves as a concise educational tool to organize the myriad of details necessary to stabilize and care for sick infants.

“S.T.A.B.L.E.” stands for the six program modules:

  • Sugar/Safe care - Establishing intravenous access and monitoring and normalizing the blood sugar. Safe, quality patient care and preventing and eliminating preventable adverse events
  • Temperature - Prevention of cold stress and hypothermia

  • Airway - Supporting ventilation and maintaining a normal acid-base balance
  • Blood Pressure - Identification and treatment of hypovolemic, cardiogenic, and septic shock
  • Lab work - Identification and treatment of neonatal infection and performing lab investigations
  • Emotional support - The crisis of NICU hospitalization and how to offer emotional support to the family

Teaching Methods 

Didactic presentation will utilize an animated CD-ROM, manuals and group discussion. Neonatal assessment and stabilization guidelines are offered in each module. Prevention of adverse events and delivery of safe patient care are stressed throughout the didactic/interactive program.

Please Note: Participants are REQUIRED to have the “S.T.A.B.L.E. Program Learner Manual – 6th EDITION” for this program; the manual can be purchased directly through the STABLE website: www.stableprogram.org/catalog/index.php

RWHC will send a pre-assessment and answer sheet to participants to complete and bring to class, so please have the manuals in hand at least two weeks prior to the class.
