    Who Can Apply?  

This course is designed for healthcare professionals who would be expected to apply the skills taught as part of their clinical duties, or to teach them on a regular basis. Appropriate participants include doctors and nurses working in critical care areas (e.g. A&E, CCU, ICU, HDU, operating theatres, medical admissions units) or on the cardiac arrest/medical emergency team and paramedics.

 

All applicants should hold a current clinical appointment and professional healthcare qualification.

    Course Aims/Brief Outline

The course has been designed to reflect the changes in resuscitation education. The focus for learning is based on adult learning principles, the role of the lecture has been de-emphasised and the use of small group teaching has been increased. This course will prepare senior members of a multi-disciplinary team to manage peri-arrest situations and to treat the patient until transfer to a critical care area. The complexity and management of cardiac arrest situations, including decision making and effective communication with the team and the patient’s relatives is included.
