The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program Provider Course (Fox Valley and Milwaukee)

The S.T.A.B.L.E. program is an educational program that focuses exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of prematurely born or sick infants. Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention, and recall of information, S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessment and care modules in the program: Sugar and Safe Care, Temperature, Airway, Blood Pressure, Lab Work, and Emotional Support.

Who should take S.T.A.B.L.E?

Stabilization is a team effort! Therefore, any health caregiver involved with post-resuscitation and/or pre-transport care of sick newborns would benefit from the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program Learner/Provider course, including:

  • Physicians: Pediatric, ER, family practice, and obstetric physicians including residents.
  • Nurses: RNs working in L&D, postpartum, nursery, emergency departments, Nurse midwives, Licensed practical nurses, and Nursing assistants.
  • Others: Respiratory therapists, Pre-hospital providers, and Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics.
