ALS - Advanced Life Support Course is organized by Resuscitation Council (UK) and will be held from Dec 12 - 13, 2019 at Royal Wolverhampton Hospital, Wolverhampton, England, United Kingdom. This CPD Conference has been approved for a maximum of 10 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points. 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. Course structure and programme ALS courses are held at centres throughout the UK and are approved and certified by the Resuscitation Council (UK). This ensures uniformity of content and standard regardless of the centre. This is a 2-day face-to-face course. All candidates will be registered on the Learning Management System (LMS) regardless of their chosen course pathway to access course modules, pre-course multiple choice questionnaire (MCQ), course evaluation and post-course certificates. The course programme consists of lectures, workshops, skill stations and cardiac arrest simulations (i.e. CASTeach). Learning outcomes 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. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
