best practice nursing

For the third year running, we're partnering with Best Practice in Nursing to provide free CPR and anaphylaxis training for nurses at the event, which takes place on 19–20 October 2017 at Birmingham NEC.

Book a free workshop

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and anaphylaxis skills are mandatory for nurses and part of the annual revalidation training and certification requirements.

We'll be running workshops throughout the two-day event, featuring presentations and practical assessments in accordance with the latest guidance.

The workshops, led by our first aid education development manager Tracey Taylor, will consist of:

  • a 15 minute theory session with demonstrations of vital techniques in CPR and anaphylaxis
  • a 10 minute practical assessment with a CPR training manikin and an auto-injector training pen.*

All attendees who successfully complete the practical assessment will receive a certificate which is valid for one year.

Places are limited so pre-booking is essential.

*Learners must be physically able to carry out the practical elements of the course.

New CPR training manikin demonstration

Visitors to the Red Cross training area can also see a demonstration of the Brayden Advanced CPR Training Manikin, which helps to visualise the effects of CPR.

The new manikins feature three interrelated sets of LED lights, which provide real-time feedback of performance and function based on:

  • chest compressions
  • blood circulation
  • overall CPR quality.
