Advanced Life Support Online (ALS)

  • : Online

With the health practitioner’s expand­ing role, they are required to have a sound knowl­edge and demon­strate skills in the care and man­age­ment of the dete­ri­o­rat­ing patient dur­ing a life-threat­en­ing emer­gency. As part of this role, the remote and rur­al health prac­ti­tion­er may be required to ini­ti­ate and main­tain ALS measures. 

The online Advance Life Sup­port Pro­gram (ALS) will pro­vide the Health Prac­ti­tion­er with an oppor­tu­ni­ty to under­take a struc­tured, flex­i­ble, self-paced course con­ducive to learn­ing, which will assist in the achieve­ment of ALS competency.

CRANAplus rec­om­mends that ALS is com­plet­ed every two years and sug­gest that BLS should be com­plet­ed pri­or to under­tak­ing the ALS course.
