EPALS (European Paediatric Advanced Life Support)

Who is this course suitable for?

The EPALS course is designed for healthcare professionals who would be expected to apply the skills taught as part of their clinical duties, or to teach them on a regular basis. Appropriate participants include doctors, nurses and paramedics working in direct contact with children. All applicants must hold a current clinical appointment and professional healthcare qualification. Medical students in their final year of training can be accepted as candidates.

The course is run over two days.  

The course programme consists of lectures, workshops, skill stations and teaching simulations.

Learning outcomes

Undertaking the EPALS course should enable you to:

  • use the structured ABCDE approach for rapid assessment of the seriously ill child;
  • manage the sick child until the arrival of expert assistance;
  • facilitate the development of resuscitation team members and team leaders;
  • use a structured approach to communication amongst team members during an emergency situation

Pre-course preparation

The course manual is sent to candidates one month before the course. Candidates are expected to have prepared for the course by reading the manual and submitting their completed pre-course MCQ paper before attending the face-to-face component. Candidates are given access to e-learning materials on the Resuscitation Council UK LMS and they must access and undertake the e-learning component and the pre-course MCQ without reference to the manual, before attending the face-to-face element of the course.

Please note: Prior competence in CPR is an essential prerequisite to attending the course.
