Basic Life Support (BLS) Run By GPs for GPs

In-person 10 Aug, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (AEST)

RACGP Victoria's Basic Life Support course is a GP peer to peer experience, delivered by a GP trainer, Dr Rod Campain. This course covers recognition of an emergency, DRSABCD, chest compressions and rescue breathing using COVID-safe resuscitation masks and equipment. It also includes a structured approach that GPs can use to treat all patients who may have a life threatening illness.

Completion of a BLS course is a requirement for the 2020-22 triennium. Secure your spot to update your BLS training and network with your peers.

Venue: RACGP House, 100 Wellington Parade, East Melbourne
