Assessment and Stabilization Care of Sick Newborns

Post-Resuscitation & Pre-Transport

 January 27 & 28, 2018

Dr. F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital
Moose Jaw, SK.

Target audience

Anyone who is required to participate in neonatal stabilization activities within their scope of practice may apply to take the STABLE course.  The individual should be a licensed or regulated health professional (or student) such as physician, nurse, midwife, respiratory therapist or paramedic.

Workshop Overview

This is a two day workshop for caregivers providing post-resuscitation and pre-transport care to sick newborns.


The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program is designed to provide important information about neonatal stabilization for maternal / infant health care providers in all settings - from community hospitals and birth centers, to emergency rooms and more complex hospital environments.

STABLE organizes this information using a mnemonic to assist with retention and recall of stabilization activities that are critical for the post-resuscitation/pre-transport care of sick infants. STABLE Improves patient safety for infants by:

(a) standardizing processes and approaches to care

(b) encouraging teamwork

(c) identifying areas where medical errors can occur

(d) reducing and eliminating preventable adverse events

Pre–workshop Preparation

A  S.T.A.B.L.E. Program Learner’s Manual and Pre-Test will be distributed to registrants prior to the workshop for pre-study.  The 40-question, multiple choice Pre-test is completed and submitted to the Course Leader at the course.

Although not a requirement, it is highly recommended that participants take the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) course prior to taking STABLE.  The NRP provides learners with essential knowledge of immediate interventions required in resuscitation of the neonate.
