Clinical Topic: While the Broselow Pediatric Resuscitation Tape can be found in most emergency departments in the United States, the lack of formal education regarding its use has been shown to be problematic. During simulation of pediatric resuscitations, observers found that the tape was often not used appropriately or correctly. The purpose of this project was to develop a formal, web-based educational course and training program for emergency care providers to increase the appropriate use of the Broselow-Luten System. This project was funded by a Maternal-Child Health Enhancing Pediatric Patient Safety Emergency Medical Services for Children special grant. Implementation: Planning and implementation of this project included: 1) Establishment of an advisory group of experts in the area of emergency care, EMS, education, and web-based technology to oversee program development; 2) development of draft curriculum for multidisciplinary providers using three delivery methods; 3) piloting of the educational program with providers in three U.S. geographical areas; study sites and site co-investigators include Duke University Medical Center (Durham, NC: Karen Frush, MD and Susan Hohenhaus, RN), Atlantic Health Systems (Morristown, NJ: Michael Gerardi, MD and Dallas Children's Hospital, (Dallas, TX: Robert Wiebe, MD). The educational program is self-paced and can be completed in approximately one hour; 4) revision of the educational program based on the results of the pilot evaluation; 5) implementation of educational program at sites in three U.S. geographical areas using piloted delivery mechanisms; and 6) development of plan of dissemination of educational program. Outcomes: This project has produced a well received E-learning educational program that can be accessed at no cost by pediatric emergency care providers. Training methodology for the program included discussion (on site and conferencing), case study, demonstration and simulations (on site). After completing the formal educational program, project participants have (a) shown improvement in a standardized approach to pediatric emergency care and (b) demonstrated improved familiarization and pediatric resuscitation management with correct use of the Broselow Pediatric Resuscitation Tape. This e-learning tool provides a standardized approach to the emergency care of pediatric patients. Pediatric emergency care providers report that being able to access the educational tool at their own pace and at various times, has helped to decrease anxiety in the use of the Broselow-Luten system during the care of an emergently ill or injured child. Recommendations: The project team recommends that all pediatric emergency care providers receive formal education regarding appropriate and correct use of the Broselow Pediatric Resuscitation Tape. Development of an E-learning program that addresses these issues has been shown to be an effective way to deliver the information in a cost-effective and standardized method. [Clinical Poster]
