Why is resuscitation training important?

It is a common expectation that healthcare staff will have sufficient knowledge and skills to be able to recognise and respond to signs of clinical deterioration. Where healthcare staff can anticipate, identify and respond to patient signs of clinical deterioration they can prevent further decline that might otherwise culminate in cardio-respiratory arrest. Consequently there has been a particular focus in promoting greater awareness and understanding in the needs and care of the deteriorating patient.

While the priority is on preventing clinical deterioration, some patients’ condition will progress to cardiorespiratory arrest and require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Early and effective resuscitation can save lives. Research in emergency care of collapsed people has led to significant advances in resuscitation techniques. Healthcare organisations must have a clearly defined resuscitation policy and ensure that they provide an effective resuscitation response and service.

As part of their duty to ensure safe and effective care, healthcare organisations must ensure that their workforce receives the appropriate training, including periodic updates, in order to maintain a level of resuscitation competence relevant to their role. The requirements stated are minimum standards and apply to the majority of the workforce in roles and settings where they might be required to provide initial CPR until the arrival of advanced life support expertise and support.

What are the learning outcomes for resuscitation training?

Learning outcomes are divided into three levels based on knowledge, skills and understanding. The appropriate level of training is dependent upon an individual’s role, work context and a local risk assessment.

The levels given here are for the majority of staff who might need to be involved in delivering CPR. However, there are additional specialist levels of outcomes which need to be achieved for those who are expected to lead a resuscitation team, are resuscitation team members or teach resuscitation.. These specialist outcomes are not covered in this framework. For further information about specialist outcomes, please see the Resuscitation Council (2015) Resuscitation Guidelines and the Quality Standards for Clinical Practice and Training.

Where staff are exposed to and involved in the care of patients from a range of age groups, they should receive the relevant type of resuscitation training.

Level 1 resuscitation learning outcomes

  • Any clinical or non-clinical staff, dependent upon local risk assessment or work context.

Level 2 resuscitation learning outcomes

Staff with direct clinical care responsibilities including all qualified healthcare professionals:

  • Staff working with Adult patients should undertake training in adult basic life support,
  • Staff working with Paediatric patients should undertake training in paediatric basic life support, and
  • Staff working with Newborn patients should undertake training in newborn basic life support.

Level 3 resuscitation learning outcomes

Staff with direct clinical care responsibilities including all qualified healthcare professionals:

  • Registered healthcare professionals with a responsibility to participate as part of the adult resuscitation team should undertake adult immediate life support training,
  • Registered healthcare professionals with a responsibility to participate as part of the paediatric resuscitation team should undertake paediatric immediate life support training,
  • Registered healthcare professionals with a responsibility to participate as part of the newborn resuscitation team should undertake newborn life support training,
  • Registered healthcare professionals involved in administering rapid tranquillisation in the care of patients with disturbed mental functioning should undertake adult immediate life support training, and
  • Registered healthcare professionals involved in administering sedation in the care of dental or podiatric patients should undertake adult immediate life support training and, where appropriate to case load, paediatric immediate life support training.

What is the Skills for Health’ UK ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?

There is increasing recognition that there are wide variations in the quality and consistency of healthcare training provided across the UK. To minimise these challenges, LearnPac Systems works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF). This includes mandatory training courses in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework – CSTF Statutory Mandatory Training Subject Guide Version 1.3 , Skills for Health Clinical Care UK Core Skills Training Framework Subject Guide April 2015 and other awareness courses for health and social care workers.

This online basic life support course was developed in line with the CSTF learning outcomes.
