This course aims to provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to be effective members of a resuscitation team. It has been designed to equip candidates with ability to manage the patient in the immediate period of crisis, including recognition, assessment and immediate management of the deteriorating patient. The course is delivered in a hybrid format with access to remote learning materials prior to attending a half day face-to-face practical component. Covered are skills to deal with a cardiac arrest or other medical emergencies in a clinical setting. Candidates will learn through a combination of lectures, skills workshops and simulation. The course fee also includes an ALS manual to help prepare for the face-to-face component. It is ideal for those healthcare professionals with limited or infrequent exposure to patients in crisis. The course includes:

  • Application of the ABCDE approach to recognise, assess and manage the critically ill patient
  • Airway management skills, including basic airway adjuncts and LMA
  • Basic Life Support (BLS)
  • Defibrillation skills (manual and/or AED modes)
  • work as an effective team member in a cardiac arrest situation
  • cardiac arrest management using the ARC ALS algorithm
  • use of pocket mask and spinal management to meet RACGP requirements
