The Innovative Competency-Based Training Program for High-Quality CPR and Improved Patient Outcomes
The American Heart Association’s Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) Program is a groundbreaking new approach to maintaining competence in CPR. The RQI Program uses realistic eSimulation patient cases and a mobile Simulation Station for quarterly psychomotor skills activities, to help healthcare providers retain life saving CPR skills.
Many healthcare providers do not perform CPR as a normal part of their daily practice, and some may rarely perform CPR after their bi-annual training. As CPR compression and ventilation skills degrade from lack of use and practice, so does the overall effectiveness of CPR. As the quality of CPR degrades, this can literally become a matter of life and death for your patients.
Fortunately, you don’t have to invest hours every day to improve and maintain your proficiency. Brief and regular practice in CPR – low-dose/high-frequency training – has been shown to lead to better skills.
