“S.T.A.B.L.E is the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program to focus on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention, and recall of information S.T.A.B.L.E stands for the six assessment and care modules in the program: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure. Lab work, and emotional.” (S.T.A.B.L.E Program Modules, 2021)

S.T.A.B.L.E. kicks in when the A. B. C’s of NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Program) works!

The Institute for Digital Health & Innovation (IDHI) is proud to offer S.T.A.B.L.E to the delivery facilities within Arkansas to promote standardization of care and improve outcomes for infants needing transport to a higher level of care.

Tina Pennington MNSc RNC-NIC, who has been teaching the S.T.A.B.L.E principles since 2006, brings her 18 years of NICU experience to each class making it entertaining and informative.

Your first S.T.A.B.L.E class is a daylong course with a ½-day refresher required every 2 years to maintain your competency. It starts with a pretest, a didactic slide presentation with a live instructor, interactive questions during the class, and a short posttest & evaluation afterwards.
