Accreditation Statement

Individuals who successfully complete the cognitive skills examination in accordance with the guidelines of the American Heart Association, Maryland Affiliate, Inc., will be awarded a two-year PALS Provider status.

Hopkins Outreach for Pediatric Education was born from collaboration between the Department of Pediatric Surgery and Department of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. The genesis of HOPE was a desire to meet a need for continuing education among healthcare providers in Maryland.

Outreach initiatives offered by HOPE will include Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). PALS courses will be available in the metropolitan Baltimore and surrounding area through a combined effort of public safety agencies, community hospitals and the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

Pediatric education will include courses for the local healthcare community, pediatric continuing education programs and an annual symposium dedicated to pediatric trauma and emergencies.

Education of healthcare providers is a critical link in ensuring that the chain of survival functions effectively for critically ill and injured children.
