Five Webinars About Improving Resuscitation Across the Healthcare Spectrum
June 14, 2018
Solving big problems in healthcare, like the low rate of success for resuscitation, is part of HealthStream’s DNA and a principle that we’ve enshrined in our corporate constitution. Promoting high quality CPR also embodies the HealthStream Vision, which is to improve the quality of healthcare by assessing and developing the people who deliver care.
Below you’ll find links to multiple recorded Webinars about overcoming CPR and resuscitation training challenges.
Even trained healthcare professionals can lack confidence in their ability to deliver CPR, often resulting in fear or avoidance of Mock Codes. In this webinar we are joined by consultant and educator, Nicole Kupchik, who will share best practices for overcoming obstacles in resuscitation training to ensure your workforce is confident and capable in delivering high-quality CPR. The discussion will tackle pressing issues with pauses, chest compression fraction, defibrillation events, over-ventilation and more—equipping your organization for improved outcomes.
On average, only 23% of adult patients will survive in-hospital sudden cardiac arrest. As alarming as that statistic is, it’s even worse in non-acute settings where survival rates are estimated to range from just 2% to 11%. In this webinar, we are joined by Donna Haynes, HealthStream Resuscitation Coach, and Alex Harris, Solutions Representative at HealthStream, as they discuss why non-acute providers must move beyond the traditional routine activity of getting the CPR card and invest more in training their staff to provide quality CPR that saves lives and improve outcomes.
Ensuring standardized quality CPR training is being delivered to your healthcare staff is imperative to improving patient outcomes. Voice-Assisted Manikins (VAMs) can bring an entirely new level of expertise to an organization and provide measurable consistency of skills teaching while also ensuring learner retention. In this webinar, you'll hear from Main Line Health, as they discuss their journey to providing high-quality CPR, their blended approach to training, and how they standardized using HeartCode VAMs. You'll also learn more about HeartCode Voice-Assisted Manikins, used to assess students' skills and knowledge of BLS, ACLS, and PALS algorithm through real-life simulations.
In this webinar, you'll hear from one organization, Rochester Regional Health, as they discuss their blended learning approach to PALS training and their commitment to delivering high-quality CPR with HeartCode® PALS, an online solution that provides healthcare providers with the knowledge and skills needed to assess and treat pediatric patients through patient scenarios in a virtual clinical setting. HeartCode® PALS was recently updated to reflect the latest AHA Guidelines and more improvements to the solution are underway. We will also be sharing what our future plans are for this CPR training solution to help ensure better outcomes for every patient, every time.
Since 2010, HealthStream and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have partnered together to deliver the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). This all-in-one NRP solution provides the best possible educational experience and materials. The 7th Edition utilizes an evidence-based approach to care of the newborn at birth and facilitates effective team-based care for healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery. NRP utilizes a blended learning approach, which includes online testing, online case-based simulations, and hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focus on critical leadership, communication, and team-work skills. In this Webinar, we will describe the new changes and features of the NRP 7th Edition educational materials, key enhancements of the new NRP LMS, and much more.
