Advanced Life Support Level 2 (ALS2) - Canberra, 19 Oct 2022 (RMA)

ACRRM has recently reviewed and improved the ACRRM Advanced Life Support (ALS) course to both improve the learning experience of participants and to better meet the needs of our members.


Our new course, designed by Rural Generalists, features online modules designed to refresh and enhance clinical knowledge, review recent updates to ARC guidelines, and support you in developing or improving your skills in leading a team to provide Advanced Life Support in the rural context. 


The ACRRM ALS course features the following mandatory components:

·         Self-directed online learning which you must successfully complete prior to attending the face to face workshop and completing your Guided Competency Validation

·         A one-day face to face workshop provides the opportunity to practice ALS skills through various clinical simulations guided by experienced Rural Generalists Instructors

·         A guided competency validation of your skills completed during the face to face workshop, providing the opportunity to demonstrate ALS skills with the support and assistance of your colleagues, as you would in the clinical environment. You will get multiple opportunities to practice and demonstrate these skills throughout the day in a supportive and friendly environment. 

·         A post-course evaluation
