Following is a general description of how the 1-day APLS Course will work. APLS Course Directors who want to conduct the new 1-day APLS Course should plan and proceed as follows:
- Select the date for the 1-day classroom instruction and announce it to prospective students.
- Plan for course implementation according to a timetable similar to that for a 2-day course (with regard to Faculty, facilities, equipment, registration, etc.), keeping in mind that students will need a longer lead time to complete their six prescribed self-study chapters and submit their answers to the Course Director for verification.
- Get the course approved in the same manner as the 2-day course.
- As students register, communicate with them individually regarding the prescribed self-study. Each student must:
- Receive APLS: The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Resource, Fourth Edition and a copy of the schedule for the 1-day classroom instruction.
- Select six chapters from the student resource manual for self-study, and communicate these selections to the Course Director for his/her approval. The chapters selected must be different from the modules that will be covered in the 1-day classroom instruction.
- Complete all six chapters and verify completion of the chapters by answering the Check Your Knowledge questions for those chapters here at least 2 weeks prior to the 1-day classroom instruction.
NOTE: When students submit their answers, they will be given the option to e-mail the answers to their Course Directors. Students should then receive verification from their Course Directors that their answers to the Check Your Knowledge questions for the six chapters have been received.
