American Heart Association (AHA)
Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support for Experienced Providers (ACLS-EP) Course
(A new way to renew your ACLS status)

 
Course Background
Starting from Oct 2006, the Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine will co-joint with the American Heart Association ITO – Hong Kong & Macao to launch the AHA ACLS-EP courses in Hong Kong.
 

It is a one day course and the goal of ACLS-EP course is to develop healthcare professional’s ability to

  • Provide an alternative for ACLS providers who wish to renew their provider status (the current recommendation for renewal is every 2 years). The ACLS-EP Course is an expanded course designed to refresh, update and challenge “experienced providers” rather than to repeat information in the ACLS Provider Course.
  • Provide a stimulus for expert clinicians and scientists to identify the many areas in resuscitation that require a different approach from that of the basic ACLS Provider Course.
  • Teach experienced ACLS providers new ways to assess and manage critical cardiovascular emergencies not currently addressed in ACLS
 
The Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine has been providing resuscitation training since 1991. All accredited AHA instructors are practicing medical or nursing colleagues with years of teaching experience.
 
 
Course Test
Practical skills and written examination are required.
 
An ACLS EP course completion card will be issued to successful candidates.
 
 
Reading Material
The course material including the AHA ACLS manual in 2005 guidelines and the AHA ECC Handbook in 2010 guidelines will be ready for collection after successful application.
Early application and collection of course materials is much encouraged.
