Please note: This study programme provides pre-course learning only. To achieve full certification you must attend a practical PBLS course.

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 cardiorespiratory arrest.

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.

At the end of this course, learners are required to complete an online assessment. On successful completion of the assessment (80% pass mark), learners may download a Paediatric Basic Life Support certificate from their profile page. Our certificate can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit purposes.
