Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

CPR, BLS & Cardiac Emergencies

This module is all about cardio-pulmonary resuscitation - CPR and AEDs, and basic life support (BLS). It's based on the guidelines issued by the UK Resuscitation Council and the UK National Health Service.

In addition to CPR and BLS, we also cover some of the common heart problems that can lead to cardiac arrest, and provide plenty of practical management advice.

The module covers cardiac emergencies in greater depth than our Medical Emergencies module, so if you are after greater understanding, this is for you.

The CPR, BLS and Cardiac Emergencies online learning module has clear and concise aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes, listed below. These will appear on the Dentaljuce Enhanced CPD Certificate, along with the time spent, dates, and detailed topics you studied within the module. Certificates can be printed at any time, covering any range of dates. Dentaljuce CPD complies with the UK GDC's requirements for enhanced verifiable continuing professional development.

Your Professional Development Plan (PDP)   
Regulatory authorities recommend that CPD/CE is undertaken based on learning needs that you have identified and entered into your PDP. Some authorities may not accept your CPD as verifiable unless it has been identified in the PDP before you undertake it.

Before starting this module, check that the learning outcomes are what you require, and that you have entered the need into your PDP. Here is an example PDP entry for this module.
