Based on the latest Australian Resuscitation Council Statements on Basic and Advanced Life Support; ANZCOR 2016 guidelines, the morning is a review of paediatric ALS content with the opportunity to apply those concepts in practice scenarios.

The theoretical and practical assessment for recertification will follow in the afternoon.

Registration includes a program manual and e-learning material.

Morning overview of the following topics will include:

  1. priorities of care
  2. paediatric basic life support algorithm and principles
  3. paediatric advanced life support algorithm and principles
  4. airway management and electrical therapy skill stations
  5. practice scenarios in team roles.

A total of 10 CPD hours is assigned to this program (including six hours program content and four hours self-directed learning). Attendees can test their knowledge by completing the electronic pre-test prior to the day. The pre-test and the paediatric PDF ALS interactive program manual are emailed approximately one-month prior to course commencement.
