Brief Overview on PHA Council on CPR Training

CPR5Since the establishment of the Council of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation of the PHA in 1982, its main flagship purpose is the continuous education and training of healthcare professionals in the field of Resuscitation Science specifically Basic and Advanced Cardiac Life Support. The formal training program methodologies gradually evolved to more comprehensive but practical hands-on skills training. The basic traditional facilitator driven training program has been strengthened by year 2000 through its Training the Trainers program and currently up to the present time has been the primary Training program for BLS and ACLS by all cardiology Training institutions, Department of Health agencies and hospitals, member institutions of the Expanded Council on CPR and majority of all allied health care professionals in the Philippines.

With the increasing demand on innovative approaches on training, especially with the current pandemic crisis hampering large group training, the council is bringing everyone its first ever BLS-ACLS Online Training Program. This Online Training program will be composed of basic modules on Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support that will meet the basic competency requirements on knowledge ands skills needed by all Allied Health Professionals and Doctors. All modules will be accessed through online registration in our PHA website and will be presented in self- paced didactic instructional videos that the participants should all complete before undergoing subsequent scheduled face to face workshops and megacode simulation examinations by our excellent trainers. All participants completing the didactic and scheduled face to face examinations will be given formal certifications as proficient BLS and ACLS providers by the Philippine Heart Association valid for 2 years.
