HAVE YOUR ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATION RENEWED BY ATTENDING THIS ONE-DAY COURSEThis course is ADVANCED life support (ALS) Level 2, this course covers advanced resuscitation skills designed for the health care professional to develop leadership skills as well as critical thinking and decision-making skills.
You will be supported and coached by experienced facilitators to assist you to achieve advanced skills and knowledge. You must demonstrate advanced knowledge and skill to be awarded accreditation. Otherwise, we can only issue a certificate of attendance (non-accredited).
We’ve noted in some candidates a lack of basic nursing knowledge regarding the difference between a collapse and a cardiac arrest. To elaborate, unconsciousness (LOC) is a sign of many conditions, not necessarily a cardiac arrest, e.g., head injury, epilepsy, overdose, to name a few. You do not perform cardiac compressions unless the patient has a loss of cardiac output due to cardiac arrest.
Assessment before action is a must – this means checking for a pulse. Only if pulseless do you perform cardiac compressions. You must show an understanding of this basic knowledge before we can award accreditation.
COURSE ACCREDITATION The course is endorsed by Australian College of Nursing (ACN) and is conducted over one day, with a pre-reading component and online video presentations.
