About this learning program:

This ALS2 recertification course is an intensive 1-day course providing the standardised approach to resuscitation in adults. It has been designed for medical and nursing from critical care areas that have completed and currently hold a current ALS2 provider certificate.

The course encourages a multidisciplinary approach to teaching and learning reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the course encouraging development of team dynamics in an emergency.

The ALS2 Recertification course consists of lectures, practical workshops and cardiac arrest scenarios, providing the opportunity to practice skills and update knowledge.

The course is very intensive and candidates are sent the ALS2/ALS manual one month prior to the course. Candidates are required to complete a pre-course multiple choice question paper to guide preparation.

The ALS course teaches the knowledge and skills required for:

  • Recognition, assessment and management of the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach (aiming to prevent cardiac arrest)
  • Treating cardiac and/or respiratory arrest, including manual defibrillation
  • Management of life-threatening arrhythmias
  • Preparing and planning for post resuscitation care
  • Leading a team, working as a team member, and useing structured communication skills including giving an effective handover
  • Consideration for end of life decision making



Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this learning program, the learner will be able to:

  • Revise the standardised approach to CPR used in adults
  • Update your knowledge on the resuscitation guidelines
  • Refresh your knowledge and practical skills
  • Utilise non-technical skills to facilitate strong team leadership and effective team membership
  • Describe the ALS algorithm

Advanced Life Support Level 2 (Sign Up for Consultants)

About this learning program:

This is a two-day (or modular) course with the focus on the developing advanced skills in managing deteriorating patient and cardiac arrest. The course is designed for healthcare professionals with who would be expected to apply those skills taught as part of their clinical duties, or to teach them on a regular basis. Appropriate participants include doctors, and nurses working in critical care areas (e.g. ED, CCU, ICU, HDU, acute admissions units) or in the resuscitation /medical emergency team, and paramedics.

Medical students, nurses and other healthcare providers not covered in the groups above may be encouraged to complete the ALS1/Immediate Life Support (ALS1/ILS) course. Those with a particular interest in resuscitation should then consider attending an ALS2/ALS course, where appropriate.

The course is very intensive and candidates are sent the ALS2/ALS manual one month prior to the course. Candidates are required to complete a pre-course multiple choice question paper to guide preparation.

Prior skills and competence in CPR is an essential prerequisite to attending the course. While the course covers advanced resuscitation skills it is also designed to develop leadership and team skills in managing such emergencies.

The ALS course teaches the knowledge and skills required to:

  • Recognition, assessment and management of the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach (aiming to prevent cardiac arrest)
  • Treat cardiac and/or respiratory arrest, including manual defibrillation

  • Preparing and planning for post resuscitation care
  • Care for the deteriorating patient or patient in cardiac and/or respiratory arrest in special circumstances such as asthma, anaphylaxis, and pregnancy
  • Lead a team, work as a team member, and use structured communication skills including giving an effective handover
  • Consideration for end of life decision making


Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this learning program, the learner will be able to:

  • Discuss the importance of early recognition of the deteriorating patient
  • Describe the causes of cardiac arrest in adults
  • State how to assess a patient using the  ABCDE approach
  • Demonstrate airway assessment, maintenance and artificial ventilation
  • Describe the heart conditions that may cause cardiac arrest
  • Explain the process that causes acute coronary syndromes (ACS)
  • Describe the different types of ACS
  • Explain how to recognise and assess an ACS 
  • List the relevant immediate treatment for each type of ACS 
  • Discuss how to recognise and respond to other cardiac conditions that may cause cardiac arrest.
  • Review the role of resuscitation team
  • Describe the ALS algorithm
  • Explain the treatment of shockable and non-shockable rhythms
  • State the reversible causes of cardiac arrest
  • Deliver standardised CPR in adults
  • Deliver safe manual defibrillation

Cancer-Related Fatigue - NEW ENERGY

Price: Free!

Mode of delivery: online

Course duration: Approx. 1 hour

Pre-requisites: N/A

Audience: This course is open for all learners including people affected by cancer. It is designed for health professionals working in cancer care and survivorship, including all allied health, nursing, medical and RT clinicians, general practitioners (GPs) and other professionals.  

 

About this learning program:

We know that fatigue disrupts the lives of around half of all cancer patients and survivors. But - patients report they are rarely asked about their fatigue or energy levels during healthcare encounters. One reason health professionals say they avoid asking patients about their fatigue is because they don’t know what to do next. Something CAN be done!

This course provides generic education for health professionals in recognising and managing fatigue in cancer. In three short modules, you will learn how fatigue affects patients’ lives, how to screen and grade fatigue and key evidence-based management approaches. The program is based on the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) guidelines for managing cancer-related fatigue. To help busy clinicians apply the guidelines, the CAPO algorithm was adapted to a traffic-light system. 



Learning Objectives:

  • List the features, prevalence and causes of fatigue.
  • Identify some personal impacts fatigue may have on people with cancer.
  • Recall cancer-related fatigue screening methods.
  • Describe fatigue prevention methods.
  • Assess factors contributing to moderate/severe fatigue.
  • Outline the appropriate actions to take when a patient’s fatigue is graded moderate to severe and identify how to access expert help.

 

What’s included in this course

  • Three online learning modules:
      • Module One: video (10 min)
      • Module Two: interactive eLearning module (10-20 min)
      • Module Three: interactive eLearning module (10-15 min)
  • Three short end-of-module quizzes to help you check your understanding
  • A variety of useful resources and links, including clinical practice resources, fact sheets, screening/assessment algorithms, referral guides, collated links to patient resources and rehab programs, etc.

 

What will I get when I have completed this course? 
Upon completion of the online modules and end-of-module evaluations, learners will obtain a Certificate of Completion as proof of training.

Foundations for Allied Health in Cancer Care (Recording - 2023)

Welcome to the recording of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre ‘Foundations for Allied Health in Cancer Care’ study day.

This event was a full day seminar held at Peter Mac in October 2023 aimed at Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Exercise Physiologists and Allied Health Assistants working in oncology. Presentations explored various facets within the world of cancer, including Presentations on Cancer, Cancer Treatments, Cancer Related Fatigue, Prehabilitation and Palliative Care.  It included discussions on complexities in cancer (e.g., lymphoedema) and a case study panel.   

Please note that due to the interactive nature of some sessions, the Practical workshops on Exercise in Cancer and Complex Seating and Pressure Care  and the Consumer Q&A Session that were conducted on the day are not included in these recordings.

We also acknowledge that this is a recording of a hybrid event and thus there may be some issues with recording quality, thus the sale price has been reduced to reflect this.
