The APLS course provides the knowledge and skills necessary for recognition and effective treatment and stabilisation of children with life threatening emergencies, using a structured, sequential approach.  The structured approach focuses the clinician on resuscitation, emergency treatment followed by continual stabilisation and then transfer to a definitive care environment.  The course aims to teach, practice and test the acquisition and use of these technical skills.  In addition, the human factors that generate the highest quality and safest health care provision are considered.

APLS is open to FY2 grades and above.
