This is a course combining e-learning and face-to-face training.You will have access to e-learning content starting from a month prior to the face-to-face course up to five months. The e-learning duration is for seven hours. The face-to-face course covers all the practical and testing elements of the course.
Who is this course suitable for?
The ALS provider 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, paramedics and nurses working in acute care areas (e.g. ED, CCU, ICU, HDU, operating theatres, acute medical admissions units) or on resuscitation /medical emergency/ICU outreach teams. All applicants must hold a professional healthcare qualification or be in training for a professional healthcare qualification. Medical students, nurses and other healthcare providers not covered in the groups above should be encouraged to complete the Immediate Life Support (ILS) course. Those with a particular interest in resuscitation should then consider attending an ALS provider course, where appropriate. Medical students in their final year of training can be accepted as candidates on an ALS course if this is an established local arrangement.
The ALS course teaches the knowledge and skills required to:
recognise and treat the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach;
deliver standardised CPR in adults;
manage a cardiac arrest by working with a multidisciplinary team in an emergency situation;
utilise non-technical skills to facilitate strong team leadership and effective team membership.
