Our StatPacks Plus Advanced Life Support Course is based on ANZ­COR Guide­lines and best prac­tice prin­ci­ples.

The course pro­vides clinicians/​workforce with the skills required that con­tribute to a suc­cess­ful out­come after a car­diac arrest. Clin­i­cians will learn the impor­tance of ear­ly rhythm recog­ni­tion, CPR, defib­ril­la­tion and post-resus­ci­ta­tion care in relaxed classroom atmosphere taught by experienced Advanced Life Support instructors.

The ALS one day course is designed to facil­i­tate a per­son­alised learn­ing expe­ri­ence for the clin­i­cians (Nurs­es, Mid­wives, Para­medics, and Med­ical Offi­cers) who may be required to pro­vide ALS.

The one day face to face work­shop enables clin­i­cians to prac­tice and devel­op their clin­i­cal skills in a sim­u­lat­ed envi­ron­ment under the guid­ance of high­ly expe­ri­enced ALS instructors.

StatPacks Plus rec­om­mends that ALS be com­plet­ed every two years and sug­gests that BLS be com­plet­ed pri­or to under­tak­ing the ALS course.

The Advanced Life Sup­port one day course con­sists of the following:

  • Online pre-course learn­ing and assess­ments that must be com­plet­ed before the course:
    Advanced Life Sup­port online the­o­ry mod­ules and assess­ment — approx. 8 hours of study
  • Atten­dance at a one day work­shop con­sist­ing of lec­tures, skill sta­tions and prac­ti­cal based scenarios
  • An indi­vid­ual sce­nario based assessment and a written assessment at the conclusion of the workshop

On successful completion of the course, clinicians will be able to:

  • Under­standing the impor­tance of ear­ly recog­ni­tion of a dete­ri­o­rat­ing patient using the ABCDE approach.
  • Deliv­er stan­dard­ised adult CPR fol­low­ing the ALS algorithm.

  • Prompt­ly recog­nise and treat shock­able and non-shock­able rhythms.
  • Under­stand the post resus­ci­ta­tion care required.
  • Demon­strate accu­rate doc­u­men­ta­tion and com­mu­ni­cate a clear con­cise han­dover of find­ings and inter­ven­tions using the ISBAR approach
  • Under­stand the legal and eth­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tions around ALS
