Resuscitation Academy Online
Launching Fall 2014
The Resuscitation Academy has been well received by those who have made a trip to Seattle for one of the semi-annual 2 – day courses. Several communities have more than doubled the long – term survival rates from out – of – hospital cardiac arrest after attending the course. Until now, enrollment has been limited to just 80 students per year. 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 and also highlight particular topics based on the presenters involved. 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:
- Importance of medical leadership
- Quality improvement program development
- High performance CPR
- Understanding cardiac arrest data
- Participating in a registry
- Deploying tools for improvement
