I would recommend this course to everyone working in paediatrics - it was the best course I have ever attended in so many ways. Brilliantly organised, fantastic information pre-course and well thought out pre-course MCQs to help you read through the manual.
The structured approach was used throughout the course and repeated so that it is ingrained in your mind. The scenarios were very challenging, especially as a nurse who has never worked in an emergency...
After doing the ACLS (Adult-provider) course last year, I opted to do the PLS course shortly before the APLS this year.
The reasoning being that if the ACLS (a 2 day course) was intense, then the APLS over 3 days would be more so. I hoped that doing the PLS would help me be more confident and relaxed during the APLS. But what I experienced was far better! Both courses are geared at slightly different levels, with the PLS being more skills / procedure oriented...
Just a note to thank you for a tremendous course! I have just attended the Wollongong APLS weekend. It would probably rate as one of the best medical courses that I have ever attended. Congratulations to you all, and particularly the instructors on this course.
I would like to express my appreciation to the co-ordinators and faculty of our APLS course. They were very professional, but fun and approachable. I feel much better prepared to assist as part of a resus team, as well as recognise and manage a seriously unwell child in my upcoming ED and paediatrics terms.
Very useful course. Comprehensive, practical and hands-on scenarios, approachable and very helpful facilitators – fun and enjoyable!
By far the best aspect of the course are the scenarios. Nothing beats the learning gained from the hands-on, real life scenarios. The mistakes you make you will not likely make again.
Excellent course. Faculty were all supportive and generous with their vast experience and knowledge - thank you.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Excellent instructors/mentors, well run. A huge amount of material to cover in 3 days but well delivered in the short time available.
I feel much more confident in resuscitation, especially after scenarios.
Extremely impressed with the course manual, it’s highly practical and will be used frequently.
