The ACoRN workshop is an interactive session that utilizes a skill-based, tool-based, case-based approach to learning. Simulations are an integral component of the workshop. Like resuscitation, stabilization of the at-risk or unwell newborn is most effective when performed by a coordinated, interprofessional team. In keeping with this philosophy, ACoRN workshops are offered on site to centres with an interprofessional audience.
ACoRN assumes participants have completed the Neonatal Resuscitation Program course at a provider level. A brief review of core knowledge and skills in neonatal resuscitation is integrated into the ACoRN textbook and are included in some of the simulation activities.
Please note at this time CPS has not yet released the ACoRN 2nd Edition Instructor and Learner resources (laminates of the NRP Primary Survey and Sequences; ACoRN: The Essential Guide; ACoRN Online exams). While CPS has not yet indicated when these resources will be available PSBC is planning to start facilitating ACoRN Workshops after April 2022. Please contact Karen Kuhlman for more information.
