Advanced Life Support

Australian Resuscitation Council Level 2

The two-day Advanced Life Support program is suitable for Doctors, nurses and paramedics from critical care areas. Pre-requisite for attendance is recent employment in a clinical environment and BLS competency. The ALS course provides a standardised approach to resuscitation in adults. It has been designed for individuals from critical care areas who would be expected to provide advanced life support in an in-hospital or pre-hospital situation. A multidisciplinary team will always attend resuscitation situations so the multidisciplinary nature of the course encourages development of team dynamics in an emergency. Assessment is based on clinical scenarios and a multiple-choice questionnaire. Continuing education:
