No notes for slide
  • Welcome participants to the PEPP Course Coordinator Group Orientation. Have participants introduce themselves.
  • Read the objectives.
  • Read the objectives.
  • Refer to slide to provide an overview of the orientation.
  • Explain that there are many resources available to PEPP Course Coordinators. Briefly describe and show the resources listed on the slide.
  • Explain that the PEPP Resource Manual is designed to be used by PEPP Course Coordinators and Faculty. Each person teaching the PEPP Course needs to have a copy of the PEPP Resource Manual. Refer participants to their Resource Manual and briefly describe what is included in each section.
  • Explain that you will now highlight some of the important information in the Administration section.
  • Read each point on the slide and briefly expand. Explain that the Faculty-to-participant ratio for the PEPP Course is 1:6.
  • Read each point on the slide and briefly expand on each.
  • Read each point on the slide and briefly expand on each.
  • Read the slide. Explain that each PEPP Course needs to have a Medical Advisor. Emphasize that the role of the Medical Advisor is to be a medical resource to the Course Coordinator on EMS issues or specific pediatric concerns related to the course. The Medical Advisor does not have to be on site during the course.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide. Explain that Faculty do not necessarily need to be people who have completed a PEPP Course. However, if they are not, the Course Coordinator should meet with the Faculty prior to the course to explain the course philosophy. Emphasize the importance of adhering to the medical principles presented in the course. This will prevent confusion and ensure that the course is consistently taught.
  • Read the slide and expand briefly on each point.
  • Explain that it is the Course Coordinator’s responsibility to secure continuing education credit, if needed. At this time, the American Academy of Pediatrics does not provide continuing education credits for the PEPP Course. If you know the procedure for securing continuing education credits in your area, explain this to the participants.
  • Encourage participants to notify the American Academy of Pediatrics of courses they have scheduled that are open to the public. Explain the ways that this can be done by referring to the points on the slide.
  • The Course Coordinator is responsible for the course budget. Read the budget considerations listed on the slide. Budget issues will be quite variable from course to course. Some Course Coordinators may wish to charge a fee to participants for taking the course in order to cover costs of implementing the course. The need and amount of course fees are at the discretion of the Course Coordinator.
  • Explain that the PEPP Pretest can be taken on the PEPP website at www.PEPPsite.com. It is optional to administer the Pretest as part of the PEPP Course. If you plan to administer the PEPP Pretest as part of the PEPP Course, time needs to be added to the schedule.
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics issues a test packet to a person when they become a Course Coordinator. Emphasize that the Course Coordinator is responsible for test security and that no participant should be allowed to leave with a copy of the test. The test are case-based to evaluate whether participants can apply the information learned in the course.
  • Emphasize the following information: The Course Coordinator needs to photocopy the test and answer sheet prior to the course. Faculty may assist with the administration of the post-test. 80% correct is a passing score on the post-test. The ALS post-test contains 25 questions. The participant must answer 20 correctly to pass. The BLS post-test contains 15 questions. The participant must answer 12 correctly to pass. A student can take the post-test a second time. If Test 1 was taken, then give the participant Test 2 as the second test. If a student does not pass the second post-test, he/she is not eligible to receive a Course Completion Card. The Course Coordinator should encourage the individual to student the textbook and retake the course at another time.
  • Feedback from participants and Faculty is an important part of maintaining the quality of the PEPP Course. Each participant needs to complete a participant evaluation form. Each Faculty member needs to complete a Faculty evaluation form. The Course Coordinator must submit these forms to the American Academy of Pediatrics for the first course that they coordinate. Course Coordinators are encouraged to submit evaluation forms for all of the courses they coordinate, but are not required to do so. Evaluations are critical for continuous improvement of the PEPP Course.
  • If you have internet access in the classroom, show participants the PEPP website. If not, a few screens from the PEPP website will be shown in upcoming slides. Most paperwork can be submitted to the AAP electronically for no charge. There is a processing fee for rosters and Course Coordinator applications submitted through the mail.
  • Refer participants to the Course Notification Form in the Resource Manual Appendix. If you are teaching a PEPP Course that is open to the public, you can post your course on the PEPP website by going to www.PEPPsite.com. If you do not have access to the internet, you can use the form in the Resource Manual Appendix and mail it to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Refer participants to the Course Roster in the Resource Manual Appendix. This Roster needs to be completed and submitted to the American Academy of Pediatrics for each PEPP Course you conduct. It can be completed through the PEPP website for no charge or it can be mailed to the American Academy of Pediatrics with a $20 processing fee. Refer participants to the Evaluation Forms in the Resource Manual Appendix. Explain that Course Coordinators are required to submit these forms for the first course that they teach and are encouraged to submit them for all of the courses they teach. Refer participants to the Course Coordinator Application in the Resource Manual Appendix. A person interested in becoming a PEPP Course Coordinator must complete this form. Those taking the online Course Coordinator Orientation will complete this form online.
  • The next section will provide the basics on conducting the various components of the PEPP Course.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide. Wait for response.
  • Read the slide. Refer participants to the Comparison Chart in the Resource Manual Appendix. Highlight the differences described in the chart. Emphasize that the PEPP Course Schedule can be implemented in a number of different ways, as long as the required components are covered.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide.
  • Refer the participants to one of the lectures in the Resource Manual. Explain that if a BLS course is being given, the ALS content may be removed.
  • Read the slide. Have participants open the Resource Manual to one of the Skill Stations and briefly discuss how to conduct a Skills Station.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide. Have participants refer to a Scenario in the Resource Manual and briefly describe how to conduct a Scenario station. Emphasize the importance of engaging participants in a discussion. Encourage everyone to participate. For tips on teaching, see the Educational Principles section in the Resource Manual.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide.
  • As a PEPP Course Coordinator, you are qualified to conduct a PEPP Course Coordinator Orientation. There are PowerPoint slides available on the Toolkit CD-ROM for conducting the orientation. Qualified individuals also have the choice of reading the PEPP Resource Manual and then completing the online Course Coordinator examination.
  • Read the slide. Explain that there are two levels of PEPP Course Coordinators, BLS and ALS. An ALS Course Coordinator can teach the PEPP BLS or ALS Course and can provide an orientation for qualified individuals who wish to become PEPP BLS or ALS Course Coordinators. A BLS Course Coordinator can teach the PEPP BLS Course and can provide an orientation for qualified individuals who wish to become PEPP BLS Course Coordinators.
  • Read the slide. If an internet connection is available in the classroom, demonstrate some of the resources.
  • Read the slide.
  • Read the slide and encourage participants to teach the course.
