Back to Multidiscipline Courses

This course is the sequel to the Mock Code Training Using Interdisciplinary Group Dynamics course, designed for all medical, nursing, and respiratory therapy staff who respond to medical emergency and code conditions. Topics covered in this course include: organized team response, competent leadership, appropriate interventions per hospital policy, proper basic life support (BLS) and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) guidelines, collaborative teamwork, effective communication, professional behavior, and crowd management. Through active participation utilizing simulation technology, healthcare team members will be able to practice their affective, cognitive, and psychomotor skills in a multi-disciplinary environment.
