The Advanced Life Support Level 1 (ALS1) course is ideal for those healthcare professionals (including student healthcare professionals) who are less frequently involved in the initial response to a deteriorating patient or to a patient in cardiac arrest. It is a one-day multi-professional course aimed at providing the candidate with the skills and knowledge to manage the patient in the immediate period of crisis.
Course Learning Outcomes
Included in the course are lectures, workshops, skills stations and simulation teaching that covers:
- Recognition, assessment and management of the critically ill patient using a structured ABCDE approach (aiming to prevent cardiac arrest)
- Airway management skills
- Basic Life Support
- Defibrillation skills (Manual and/or AED modes)
- Cardiac arrest management using the Australian Resus Council ALS Algorithm
- Work as an effective team member in a cardiac arrest
The course is ideal for those in healthcare with limited or infrequent exposure to life-threatening crisis events needing advanced life support training.
Candidates are sent a manual at least two weeks prior to the course to commence preparation for the face-to-face component. This includes those skills for dealing with a cardiac arrest or other medical emergencies in a clinical setting.
The adult advanced life support courses are standardised national courses accredited by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC), teaching evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and skills to healthcare professionals.
As all co-badged courses in Australia are regulated by the ARC, the ALS course credentials are cross-recognised by the RC (UK), New Zealand Resuscitation Council (NZRC) and the European Resuscitation Council (ERC).
Candidates on the ALS courses are derived from the medical, nursing, paramedical and allied healthcare professions. ARC Courses provide the opportunity for inter-professional education to promote the knowledge, skills, attributes and attitudes in order to work together in an effective collaborative fashion. Certification for the advanced life support courses is valid for up to 4 years.
