The Resuscitation Academy in Seattle is currently by invitation only.
However, there are Resuscitation Academy events being offered across the globe in 2015. All Resuscitation Academy events aim to deliver the same core content tailored to suit local communities. All events are low-cost or free. For information on a course close to you, send us an email. We will get you in touch with the right people.
Resuscitation Academy Online ~ Starting October 12th, 2015
Now, more EMS leaders can take advantage of the program via the web, and ultimately use the information to increase cardiac arrest survival in their communities. The content for the online Resuscitation Academy will be based on the existing 2 – day course. We are fortunate to be incorporating not only the expertise of the long serving leaders of the Seattle and King County EMS systems, but also other experts involved in Medtronic Philanthropy HeartRescue activities. Some of the topics that will be covered include:
- 10 steps to improve survival
- High-performance CPR
- Telecommunicator CPR
- Participating in a data collection registry
- Resuscitation science
- Community CPR and AED programs
- Medical leadership
- Creating a culture of excellence
The course features lectures from leading experts, moderated discussion forums, and a rich library of resources all designed to help students make improvements in their own systems as soon as possible.
Who: EMS medical directors, managers, or training officers.
