Local CPR Training - Keep Updating Your Training

Local CPR training is something that a lot of healthcare and non-healthcare organisations look for to help train their staff. However, it's easy to think that just one session of training will have your staff set for life. As with any sort of training, it's best learned over and over again.

Perhaps your organisation already ran a CPR training course a few years ago. You may be considering if it's worth your while to run another course. The answer is a resounding yes. Guidelines and techniques change in time. For example, only a few years ago it was decided that bystanders responding to a heart attack or cardiac arrest should only use compressions during CPR on a casualty. There has also been an increasing focus on the need to “push hard and push fast” when it comes to compressions. Staff who had previously received medical training in CPR may not be aware of these changes, which could affect the chances of someone's survival. Not only that, but applying CPR is incredibly stressful. Those who are trained the basics can even question if they are remembering techniques correctly. By regularly training your staff CPR, you are increasing their retention of knowledge. This, in turn, increases the chances of your staff saving someone's life. Also, the quality of training can impact how well staff retain knowledge. Therefore, it's important to find high-quality training at a fair cost.
