  • : Online

In response to member requests the RACGP Tasmania Faculty offers a time efficient approach to CPR consisting of a pre-reading (1 hr) component followed by a practical skills assessment (1 hr) delivered locally. To achieve competency participants need to complete both components. 
November course registration is available online via Tas Faculty Events. 

Friday Session 1: 5.30pm - 6.30pm, Session 2: 6.45pm -7.45pm and Saturday Session 1: 9.30am - 10.30am , Session 2: 10.45am -11.45am 


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.

Learning outcomes

  • Describe the legal requirements of providing CPR including duty of care, consent and negligence issues.
  • Explain the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) resuscitation guidelines including compression ventilation ratio.
  • Explain the chain of survival and describe the effective management of an unconscious patient.
