Blended learning

Additional information:

Introductory practical session :
During the session, participants will review the principles of team first aid that were delivered during B1 and B3.
There will be an introduction to advanced resuscitation, which will allow a first approach to the ILS-ALS algorithm.
Individual learning of the ERC book :
An individual autonomous learning of the ILS book will be performed by the students. This book is proved to students through myULiege.
Two practical session (ILS learning) :
Two practical sessions will be provided to the students on the same day, corresponding to a standard ILS session. A specific evaluation at the Conseils Belge et Européen de Réanimation (BRC-ERC) will allow students to obtain, independently from the university curriculum, an european ILS certificate (this certification will not influence the academic score).
