Metodi didattici

BLS and, whenever possible, use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the first level of care for a person in cardiac arrest. Learning to perform BLS and AED use is an interactive process requiring both knowledge and practical skills. Part or all of this knowledge and some skills will be obtained by self-instruction and on-line learning.

Teaching modes include: Traditional lectures, E-learning BLS, Workshop and Simulation Scenario.
