In order to improve pediatric emergency preparedness in central western New York, the University of Rochester Medical Center/Golisano Children’s Hospital is launching a new pediatric training opportunity, Mobile Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS*). This innovative program targeted towards physicians, nurses and paramedics who provide care at in rural and community hospitals in the Western, Finger Lakes and Central Regions of New York State. It will combine the self-learning module (AHA HeartCode PALS) along with a full day of training, simulation and testing.
The University of Rochester Medical Center/Golisano Children’s Hospital Mobile PALS Project has been partially funded through a grant from the NYS Department of Homeland Security under the 2011 Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS) Program awarded to the City of Rochester Fire Department.
*PALS is on the NYSDOH grant-funded Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) pre-approved training list.
