. February 12, 2016 You are now registered for Kadlec Regional Medical Center’s (KRMC) RENEWAL Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Provider Course: When and Where: Date: Wednesday, February 24, 2010 Time: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM Location: Columbia Room III, 3rd Floor of KRMC’s Mountain Pavilion Participants need to arrive promptly at the start of the day. Students are expected to be on time and participate in the entire course. Prior to the Course: For local participants, please pick up an ACLS Provider Manual (with student CD) and the Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers in the Education Department, 2nd floor of the Mountain Pavilion. If you live outside the local area, email the Education Department at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your manual mailed to you. Attached is your copy of the BLS Review Sheet. How to Get Ready: The ACLS Renewal Provider Course is designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or out-of-hospital setting. Because the ACLS Renewal Provider Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand. Precourse Requirements: You should prepare for the course by doing the following: 1. Complete the pre-course checklist that came with your ACLS Provider Manual. Review and understand the information in your ACLS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the 10 core cases in Part 4. 2. Review and understand the information in the BLS for Healthcare Providers video clip on the student CD. The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current. You will be tested on adult 1-rescuer CPR and AED skills at the beginning of the ACLS Provider Course. You will not be taught how to do CPR or how to use an AED. You must know this in advance. 3. Review, understand, and complete the ECG and Pharmacology pre-course assessment tests on the ACLS student CD. You will not be taught how to read or interpret ECGs in the course, nor will you be taught details about ACLS pharmacology. The ACLS Renewal Provider Course does not teach algorithms, ECG, or pharmacology information. If you do not learn and understand the ECG and pharmacology information in the precourse assessment tests, it is unlikely that you can successfully complete the ACLS Initial Provider Course. What to Bring: Bring your ACLS Provider Manual to each class. You will need your ACLS Provider Manual during each lesson in the course. You may refer to the Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers as a reference guide during some of the stations in the course. DRESS CODE: Kadlec Health System has a dress code policy that will be enforced for all Kadlec employees. For all participants, we ask that you dress modestly, comfortably and appropriately for participating in group activities and/or skills stations. Every effort will be made to ensure a comfortable environment; however, a sweater or sweatshirt may be needed for your personal comfort. We ask that no shorts, flip-flops/sandals, tank tops, tube tops, etc. be worn. Employees who are not adhering to the dress code will be asked to change prior to the start of the course. CANCELLATION POLICY: Due to the need to facilitate the number of instructors and resources, this course will close two weeks prior to the start date. If you feel that you need to cancel, you must do so prior to that time. *Cancellations made two weeks or more prior to course start date will receive a full refund minus a $75.00 processing fee. (If you chose to add the Renewal BLS, there is no refund for the fee of the non-refundable code). We reserve the right to cancel a class due to insufficient registrations. If class is cancelled, registrations will be refunded. Attempts will be made to notify participants as soon as possible. The class fee will be refunded in full if the participant is unable to attend due to medical reasons.
