Immediate Life Support & e-Immediate Life Support Courses

Richmond Pharmacology’s London Bridge Unit is an accredited Resuscitation Council course centre. We specialise in running courses with reduced candidate numbers for a better learning experience. We provide training to our staff, as well as external candidates in the areas of Resuscitation and Immediate Life Support.

Designed for healthcare professionals in a variety of settings such as first responders, nurses, doctors, and the military, our courses provide a flexible and welcoming learning environment.

The programme covers:

  • How to manage a deteriorating patient
  • Identifying causes and promote prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Treating cardiac arrest using the ABCDE approach
  • The leadership skills needed in these areas.

The course is available in two formats: a full day face-to face course and a blended course which consists of half day e-learning and half-day face-to-face learning.

e-ALS Course

e-ALS launched in 2012 and covers the same course content as ALS. It involves one day of e-learning, which is done in your own time, before attending a one-day face-to-face course, providing increased flexibility, and reducing the need for time away from work.

e-ALS has been developed using our evidence-based Guidelines and decades of experience in delivering effective resuscitation courses for healthcare professionals, and will help build the confidence needed to take the lead in an emergency.

During the course, you will develop the knowledge and skills required to:

  • Recognise and manage the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach.
  • Deliver standardised CPR in adults;
  • Manage a cardiac arrest by working with a multidisciplinary team in an emergency situation;
  • Become an effective and confident team member and leader by utilising non-technical skills.

Who is the course for?

The e-ALS course is designed for healthcare professionals who need skills in advanced life support as part of their clinical duties, as well as those who teach these skills on a regular basis. This includes doctors, paramedics and nurses working in acute care areas (e.g. ED, CCU, ICU, HDU, operating theatres, acute medical admissions units) or on resuscitation/ medical emergency/ Critical Care Outreach teams.

All applicants must hold a professional healthcare qualification or be in training for a professional healthcare qualification. Medical students in their final year of training can be accepted as Candidates if this is an established local arrangement.
