General information

Objective

The ALS course teaches the theory and practical skills to effectively treat cardiorespiratory arrest, peri-arrest situations and special circumstances, and to prepare senior members of a multidisciplinary team to treat the patient until transfer to a critical care area is possible.

Who the course is suitable for

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. Medical students are only allowed to register for the ALS course if they attend 5th or 6th grade.

Pre-course preparation

The course comprises lectures, practical skill stations, workshops and assessments. The manual (written in English) is sent to the candidate one month before the course date and the candidate is strongly advised to study this thoroughly before completing a pre-course multiplechoice questionnaire (MCQ). This MCQ must be handed in, with the question paper, on arrival at the course centre. This pre-course assessment provides a baseline measure upon which new leasing can be evaluated and it should be completed without reference to the manual.

Competence in cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an essential prerequisite to the course.

Course language

English (at least basic knowledge of reading and communication skills is necessary)
