PDF - Clinical Skills Development Service

Adult and Peadiatric Advanced Life Support Training 2016
This year we are doing things a little different.
Course Outline
This year the course will be delivered in partnership with the clinical skills
development service (CSDS) and Simulation Training on Resuscitation for Kids
(SToRK) team. The course is accredited with:
 Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA)
 College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia & New Zealand (CICM)
consistent with the Consensus Statement of the International Liaison Council
on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC)
resuscitation guidelines.
Participants will be provided with the skills and knowledge in the principles of Adult
and Paediatric Advanced Life Support so that they will be able to initiate an immediate
response and perform effectively throughout the resuscitation process.
Who should attend?
ALS is a mandatory training requirement for all medical practitioners and Registered
Nurses working within TCHHS.
Delivery Structure
The program is offered in a blended delivery approach – on-line learning and clinical skills
stations and simulation scenario assessments.
Time Requirements:
8 hours on-line learning – staff will need to be released for this time at least a week before
their course.
8 hours face to face assessment by TCHHS Nurse Educators
On-line training requirements

Those staff needing to recertify will be required to enrol each year into the on-line
programs. They will have direct access to the exams which are placed throughout the
programs. If they feel confident in their knowledge and skills they can attempt the quiz
without redoing the whole program. If they are unsuccessful in the quiz they will be
prompted to redo that section. The Nurse Education team will have access to information
pertaining to the amount of attempts a participant requires to have to gain a pass mark.
