Designed for Nurses, Midwives, Paramedics, and Medical Officers, but open to any remote health care workers, the Advanced Life Support Program is based on ANZCOR Guidelines and best practice principles. The course will provide the remote health workforce with the advanced life support skills required in the management of the patient prior, during and after a cardio respiratory arrest with an emphasis on care in the remote and isolated setting.
The CRANAplus Advanced Life Support (ALS) one day course is based on ANZCOR Guidelines and best practice principles. The course provides remote health clinicians/workforce with the skills required that contribute to a successful outcome after a cardiac arrest. Clinicians will learn the importance of early rhythm recognition, CPR, defibrillation and post-resuscitation care in the context of a remote and isolated setting.
CRANAplus encourages health care clinicians to apply ALS knowledge and skills acquired within the context of the policies of their employing health service.
The ALS one day course is designed to facilitate a personalised learning experience for the remote and isolated clinician (Nurses, Midwives, Paramedics, and Medical Officers) who may be required to provide ALS. This ALS course is contextualised for the remote and isolated setting with limited resources. The one day face to face workshop enables clinicians to practice and develop their clinical skills in a simulated environment under the guidance of highly experienced ALS instructors.
CRANAplus recommends that ALS be completed every two years and suggest that BLS be completed prior to undertaking the ALS course.

Given the remote location of many of our courses, we are sometimes restricted to Vegetarian and Gluten Free dietary options. While we always supply fresh food and fruit, particular foods may not be easily accessed in remote areas. Should you have quite specific restrictions we encourage you to bring some basics and then pick and choose from the fresh food offered on the day. You should also inform us of any allergies you may have so we can advise the caterer and be aware of the situation.
