Welcome to PAC

nextgen learning designed to elevate your airway practice

MOre than a course We’re a collaborative community

Welcome to the Protected Airway Collaborative. A community of airway educators dedicated to making airway training better by focusing on you, the learner. PAC was created around a single simple idea: that any airway knowledge is useless if it can’t be translated into action during those stressful and time-critical moments when it matters most. So our team of experts from across the spectrum of airway care and our medical education innovators, set out to design an airway training program that is more accessible, more engaging, and (most importantly) more effective, by focusing on how you learn.

nEXTGEN training DESIGNED to elevate your airway practice

To do this, we developed an entirely new learning delivery system that breaks down traditional knowledge silos, and transcends the limits of current teaching styles. We apply design thinking to find solutions to learning complex skills in a difficult learning environment, and achieve more effective knowledge translation.

We start by connecting our diverse team of educators from anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, otolaryngology, EMS, and others, with our creative design partners to build an entire universe of immersive, interactive and customizable training modules that we call learning spaces.

A collaborative design process

These learning spaces are where we merge digital and physical space to enhance your airway training; apply design thinking to address the challenges of today’s learning environment, and blend traditional and novel styles of teaching to make something new. It’s where we collaborate, share and tell important stories, to bring greater depth and perspective to every topic. 

Merging Digital & Physical Space

Each learning space is designed to function effectively in both the online and in person learning environment, eliminating the traditional boundaries between the two. Go inside a learning space online and you’ll be connected to all of our content covering basic to advanced airway concepts and skills. Use our rapid reviews, self-assessment tools, guided self-practice resources. Listen to our original podcasts, follow our blog & social media posts, listen to personal airway stories, build your learning network with our pick of other great airway educators, and much much more.

Then discover how we recreate these digital spaces in the physical space to create our immersive in person education experiences. Our unique pop up style brings all our digital content to life, providing hands on practice in our training labs, expert coaching, and high fidelity simulations to create an education continuum for airway training anytime, anywhere. Each pop-up space can be easily recreated anywhere, anytime and be left to run on its own for anytime learning that can be integrated in daily workflows, conferences and more.

Blending learning styles to meet learners where they live, providing more effective and resilient education opportunities, and transforming the learning experience for the next generation of clinicians is at the heart of what we do.
