CHSA - ALS Pre-learning

Advanced Life Support, Resuscitation of the Seriously Ill, Acute Myocardial Ischaemia


The ALS prelearning 2019 is now available !

The 2019 ALS Course is a combined online/skills workshop program developed by LearnEM and Country Health SA to provide nurses with a broad understanding of the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines for

  • Basic and Advanced Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

  • Immediate assessment and Resuscitation of the Critically Ill / Deteriorating Patient

  • Emergency assessment / management of Acute Myocardial Ischaemia

The ALS course is a blended program. This means that some of the learning is done online (eLearning) and some undertaken face-to-face in a workshop setting.

Please note access to these courses is restricted to those registered for CHSA - ALS Training


A rewarding way to consolidate and build skills in acute care

The EDGE course is an eLearning resource designed to allow nurses to examine a wide range of emergency presentations and develop skills in acute care. The course is delivered in a series of 20 modules (at a cost of $9.90 per module) and explores the following topics : the sick child, acute headache, acute abdominal pain, severe asthma, ECG interpretation, acute poisoning, first trimester bleeding, major trauma, upper and lower limb orthopaedic injuries, blood gas interpretation, eye emergencies, epistaxis, mental health emergencies and acute pain management. For those that want to go even further with their learning, there are 14 Extended EDGE (or eEDGE) courses that allow the learner to dive in deep and explore a topic of their interest. Very exciting !

At the completion of each EDGE module a CPD certificate is awarded that identifies completion of 2 hours of CPD. An "EDGE Course Certificate" is available at the completion of the course confirming 40 hours of Continuing Professional Development.
