The e-ALS course is designed for healthcare professionals who need skills in advanced life support as part of their clinical duties, as well as those who teach these skills on a regular basis. This includes doctors, paramedics and nurses working in acute care areas (e.g. ED, CCU, ICU, HDU, operating theatres, acute medical admissions units) or on resuscitation/ medical emergency/ Critical Care Outreach teams.

All applicants must hold a professional healthcare qualification or be in training for a professional healthcare qualification.

Learning outcomes

During the course, you will develop the knowledge and skills required to:

  • Recognise and manage the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach;
  • Deliver standardised CPR in adults;
  • Manage a cardiac arrest by working with a multidisciplinary team in an emergency situation;
  • Become an effective and confident team member and leader by utilising non-technical skills.

e-ALS covers the same course content as ALS.

Pre-course preparation

It involves one day of e-learning, which is done in your own time, before attending a one-day face-to-face course, providing increased flexibility and reducing the need for time away from work.
 
e-ALS has been developed using evidence-based Guidelines and decades of experience in delivering effective resuscitation courses for healthcare professionals, and will help build the confidence needed to take the lead in an emergency.
