S.T.A.B.L.E. Program - 9 July 2024

July 9, 2024

Program Description

The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program was developed to meet the educational needs of healthcare providers who must deliver an important stabilization care for newly born infants. S.T.A.B.L.E. education is critical to the mission to reduce infant mortality and morbidity and to improve the future health of children and their families. It is the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of 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, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support. A seventh module, Quality Improvement, stresses the professional responsibility of improving and evaluating care provided to sick infants.

Target Audience

This activity provides continuing education for physicians, nurses, and physician assistants. A certificate of attendance is available for other attendees.

  4. Reassess and monitor the newborn in a timely manner based on standards of care.
