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.

Children’s Wisconsin is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Wisconsin Nurses Association, an accredited provider by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. This activity was jointly planned with S.T.A.B.L.E. Nurses who successfully complete this activity will receive 7.0 nursing contact hours.

To receive nursing contact hour credit, the participant must attend the entire activity and complete an evaluation of the course. No one in control of content has any relevant financial relationships with ineligible companies.*

*Ineligible companies are those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, reselling, or distributing products used by or on patients.
