Advanced Life Support Level 2 (ALS2) - Darwin 29 Oct 2024

Designed by Rural Generalists, the Advanced Life Support Level 2 (ALS2) course was created to meet the needs of rural doctors to support and enable them to exceed the standards set by the Australian Resuscitation Council. This two-day course provides you with the knowledge and skills to demonstrate your competency and improve your confidence in leading and managing Advanced Life Support presentations in rural clinical settings.

The first component of the course is self-directed online learning and is designed to refresh and reinforce ALS guidelines, update new recommendations and evidence, and review the pharmacology and relevant pathophysiology components required to succeed in the course. The online modules will take approximately one day to complete.

The second part of the course is delivered face-to-face. This training focuses on reinforcing your experience and knowledge by applying the online learning content and contextualising it to the rural environment. Delivered in a peer-to-peer learning environment, the one-day face-to-face training allows you to work with facilitators and other participants on a variety of real-world scenarios to demonstrate competency.

It is recommended that participants register for the course at least 4 weeks prior to the hands-on workshop days to ensure that you have enough time to complete the online learning hours.
