Resus­ci­ta­tion Acad­emy Online

Launch­ing 2015

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

If you are inter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pilot of Resus­ci­ta­tion Acad­emy Online, please sign-up using the link below. We will be send­ing an update as the project pro­gresses and a launch date is determined.
