New program delivers CPR courses without instructor assistance
MedLern, digital learning solution for hospitals and healthcare professionals, has unveiled an innovative, online resuscitation training platform that does not require instructor oversight. Yenepoya (Deemed to be University), Mangalore is the first university in India to adopt this program for training their medical practitioners in BLS, ACLS and PALS. The online program, HeartCode Complete is co-developed and powered by American Heart Association (Association) science and Laerdal Medical technology.
This program reduces training time as compared to the traditional instructor-led model. The program is divided into two parts: online, self-paced Cognitive Part 1 and Skills Session on the RQI-P GO Simulation Station. Upon completing both parts, the learner receives an American Heart Association course completion e-Card. RQI-P GO Simulation Stations are portable and can be used by hospitals to train their staff on BLS/ACLS/PALS on their hospital premises rather than them travelling to training centres in different locations.
Deepak Sharma, Co-founder and CEO, MedLern said, “HeartCode Complete provides healthcare professionals with BLS/ACLS/PALS instruction while being onsite without having to travel to a training facility. This program not only saves time but delivers cost savings. The healthcare organisation opting for this program does not have to invest in the equipment as it will be completely managed by MedLern. The survival rate from sudden cardiac arrest is less than 1 per cent worldwide; through this training program, cardiac deaths can be reduced by making the hospital staff skilled in resuscitation. The online training model provides truly personalised learning at scale. A personalised algorithm adapts educational content in real time to the learner’s specific expertise. The learning algorithm also continuously adapts content as the learner is progressing through the training program.”
The innovative program aims to improve the staff productivity and deliver better patient outcomes. The program will also reduce the operational cost of physical training and optimize time and resources while delivering high-quality resuscitation training.
