Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Support
Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Support (PFCCS) trains nonintensivists to recognize critical illness and initiate care for the critically ill pediatric patient. The course addresses fundamental management principles for the first 24 hours of post-resuscitation management of the critically ill pediatric patient until transfer or appropriate critical care consultation can be arranged and is reccommended for any healthcare provider who may encounter a critically ill or injured pediatric patient.
The PFCCS course is offered in several flexible learning formats which allow institutions and individuals to select the right learning method. For institutions seeking to train healthcare providers, hosted course options are available which combine didactic lectures and in-person skill stations for a comprehensive learning experience. For individuals searching to expand their critical care knowledge, an online self-directed option is offered or individuals may purchase the textbook or locate a course hosted by another institution near them.
