Halifax Resuscitation Course – November 24th 2015

As recommended by Dr Jo-Ann Talbot

The new Simulation-Based Education Course entitled The Halifax Resuscitation Course. This is the second registration of this course and the first course last year was very well received.  This course is proudly developed by the Department of Emergency Medicine at Dalhousie University, and supported by Dalhousie Continuing Professional Development. The course is fully accredited by both The Canadian College of Family Physicians, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, please see the attached brochure for more detailed information on accreditation and course objectives. 


This course involves high-fidelity simulation and cadaveric scenarios of critical events seen in medicine.


This high-fidelity simulation section of the course runs half a day. It functions through a team based inter professional approach, having physicians, nurses, and paramedics in each group, to share and draw from multiple experiences. The scenarios and debriefs are high intensity, and occur in rapid succession. The learning is on the spot, and experiential in every way!


The cadaveric component entails the other half of the day. Nightmare scenarios, and rare critical events comprise this exciting hands on teaching and learning session. Practice critical procedures such as: boogie-assisted cricothyrotomy, difficult airways, I/O technique, chest tubes, central lines ( IJ and Femoral), as well as the pre and post care that makes these procedures successful! This is unprecedented learning at its best. Nothing simulates critical events like real human tissue.


Please register as soon as you can to avoid disappointment. The course was over registered the first time, and many disappointed folks had to be turned away. The registration link is below.
