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:
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.
