Abstract

The S.T.A.B.L.E.(R) Program is the first neonatal continuing education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. Neonatal Resuscitation Program provides the requisite education for healthcare providers to safely and systematically resuscitate neonates. However, those infants who require resuscitation also require ongoing care to decrease the risk of morbidity and mortality. The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program provides all members of the neonatal healthcare team with the knowledge needed to render necessary care to infants who are under post-resuscitation or pre-transport stabilization care. Utilizing an organized approach, the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program facilitates the care process by prompting healthcare providers to focus on specific areas of care. This article provides an overview of (1) the history of the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program, (2) the philosophy and goals of the program, (3) a course overview of individual modules, (4) acceptance and recognition of the program in the healthcare community, (5) the target audience, and (6) administration of the course.
