This workshop brings together some of the most experienced resuscitation educators and instructors in Australia and will emphasise a problem solving approach to the management of emergency situations using the latest ARC Guidelines.
This ALS program is designed to equip participants with the necessary cognitive and psychomotor skills required to respond to patients in a cardiac arrest in a health care environment. The program will emphasise the practical aspects of resuscitation and provide participants with the theory underpinning such aspects.
The small group practical skill stations will emphasize the assessment and management of the patient using a variety of techniques and equipment. Through this, practical skills and troubleshooting abilities will be developed. During these skill stations, the skills and knowledge of each participant will be continually monitored and assessed.
The first day will include aspects of both Adult and Paediatric Resuscitation whilst the second day will focus on Adult Cardiac Arrest. A separate one day program is available for those interested in Paediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).
Candidates may elect to skip Day 1 of the full ALS course and attend Day 2 only providing the candidate can show proof of completing a comprehensive Basic Life Support (BLS), Immediate Life Support (ILS/ALS1) or equivalent course within the last 12 months. A 3 month grace period will apply.
Whilst all candidates will have their skills monitored and assessed throughout the practical sessions, this workshop will be supported by the opportunity for you to have your competence assessed & accredited. Further details will be provided with your confirmation of registration.
Numbers are limited for these workshops, and due to popularity we advise you to register early to receive your pre-reading package and secure your place.
This Course is designed for all medical staff, nursing staff, and other health care professionals who need to be capable of providing immediate emergency care to their patients. It also meets the ALS training program requirement for GP registrars.
