Health Care Professionals

The ER24 Training Academy’s Accredited Health Care Professional courses have been designed to meet the requirements of those Individuals that wish to enter the Emergency Medical Care industry and want to become a paramedic, as well as those who have already qualified, but are required to keep their knowledge and expertise up to date through the attendance of Continuing Professional Development Courses (CPD).

The following Health Care Professional training courses are available through the ER24 Training Academy:

BASIC LIFE SUPPORT FOR HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS

(Only available to medical professionals.)

The Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers Course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognise several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.

PEARS (PAEDIATRIC EMERGENCY ASSESSMENT, RECOGNITION AND STABILISATION)

(Only available to medical professionals.)

The Paediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilisation (PEARS) Course was designed for healthcare providers who infrequently see critically ill children. It is not intended for those credentialed for advanced paediatric skills who routinely provide paediatric care. PEARS prepares students to assess, categorise, decide and act early to stabilise the child. The main focus of PEARS is prevention, and specifically the assessment, recognition and stabilisation of paediatric victims at risk of severe cardiopulmonary distress.

Target Market: BLS, ILS and staff nurses

ACLS (ADVANCED CARDIAC LIFE SUPPORT)

(Only available to medical professionals.)

The American Heart Association’s Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support Course is totally redesigned for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of hospital. Through the ACLS course, providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies. ACLS emphasises the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival; the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.
ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practise essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leader. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts: proficiency in basic life support care; recognising and initiating early management of peri-arrest conditions; managing cardiac arrest; identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes; recognising other life-threatening clinical situations (such as a stroke) and providing initial care; ACLS algorithms; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

Target market: ILS, ALS, reg. nurses and doctors.

INTERNATIONAL TRAUMA LIFE SUPPORT

(Only available to medical professionals.)

ITLS is accepted internationally as the standard training course for pre-hospital trauma care. It’s used as a state of-the-art continuing education course – and as an essential curriculum in many paramedic, EMT and first responder training programmes. ITLS courses combine classroom learning and hands-on skill stations. Scenario assessment stations enable you to put your learning to work in simulated trauma situations. ITLS courses are designed, managed and delivered by course directors, co-ordinators and instructors experienced in EMS, pre-hospital care and the ITLS approach.
Each ITLS course includes a comprehensive manual sent to you in advance. The manual enhances your learning experience with in-depth content, photos and illustrations. ITLS manuals are written by trauma care experts and edited by the ITLS editorial board. After the course you can turn to the manual as a valuable recap of what you’ve learned.

ITLS Basic and Advanced

These comprehensive courses are designed for providers who are first to evaluate and stabilise the trauma patient. The courses provide complete training in the skills needed for rapid assessment, resuscitation, stabilisation and transportation of trauma patients.

The ITLS Basic Course provides the core of knowledge and skills appropriate for all levels of EMS personnel, including BLS, first responders and other technicians. The ITLS Advanced Course builds on this knowledge, emphasising evaluation steps and sequencing, as well as techniques for resuscitating and packaging patients.

The ITLS Advanced Course is appropriate for paramedics, trauma nurses, physicians and other advanced EMS personnel. Hands-on stations include:

PALS (PAEDIATRIC ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT)
