Relevance to General Practice
The RACGP requires members to complete a basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation course (CPR) to support their vocational registration. The introduction of this requirement aims to improve patient outcomes by supporting general practitioners to maintain and enhance their basic life support skills. RACGP Tasmania offers a flexible approach for time poor GPs to refresh and update their CPR knowledge in line with ARC guidelines, and to have their skills in Basic Life Support assessed by a GP specialist CPR instructor.
