HeartCode online course booking

Please note

  • The HeartCode course does not run on any specific day - the dates are on the website to allow you to book onto the course.
  • When a booking is made, a code is purchased from th American Heart Association (AHA)/Irish Heart (IH) and then sent from us to the participants .
  • Once the code is received the course can be accessed and completed straight away
  • If you have booked onto the HeartCode course through the website, the code will be snt as soon as we recive these from the AHA/IH

Due to the level 5 restrictions, we have made some changes to the Anaphylaxis and BLS courses

Anaphylaxis: This will now be offered as an interactive webinar. A blended-learning approach using case histories, guideline discussions, medication and equipment familiarity will be the format of the 2-hour session.

Bookings can still be made through the website and enquiries can be made at info@immediatecaretraining.ie

BLS Course: The BLS course is offered in 2 parts:

  • Part 1 involves completing the HeartCode course and covers the knowledge aspects of BLS. This is a stand-alone course that can be done in the candidates own time at home or work. On completion the course certificate will be available to download. Access to all the materials for the course will be available for the duration of the certificate (2-years).

  • Part 2 is covers the BLS skills and is done in a face-to-face setting. This is also is stand-alone course and can be completed at a later date i.e., does not need to be done at the same time as the HeartCode course.

Both parts must be completed to receive the full BLS certificate. However, with a view of minimising risk through inter-county travel and candidates mixing with others outside their normal work-place bubbles we have decide to offer part 1 only until the restrictions have been relaxed.

For anyone who is going to be involved with vaccinations, you should check with your organisation that the Anaphylaxis course and the BLS HeartCode part 1 course are suffice under the current circumstances. The Part 1 course materials include online videos of BLS skills that are an excellent resource to bridge the gap between Part 1 and Part 2

Both the Anaphylaxis and BLS Part 1 courses have 4 x CPD points awarded by the Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP) and 4 x Continuing Education Units (CEU’s )Nurse & Midwifery Board Ireland (NMBI)


Please Note - Due to the demand for training, there may be a delay in the HeartCode codes availability from Irish Heart

COVID-19 Community ALERT Signs

PLEASE FORWARD TO YOUR CONTACTS

We have developed some ALERT signs that can be used by anyone who would like to let their family, friends and neighbours know if they need help or not.

There are 3 signs, each with a specific colour that relates to the ALERT priority, namely:

  • RED: I/we need help now
  • YELLOW: I/we do not need help yet, but please check back tomorrow
  • GREEN: I/we have everything I need and are ok

The colours are based on a Triage system that is widely used and recognised during a major incident by pre-hospital and Hospital Healthcare organisations - where the colours relate to a time frame that treatment should be provided

A box is provided on the sign for the individual or household to complete. Anyone who is in a position to help can read the specific problem and help that is being sought and avoid direct contact.

These signs should be displayed in the window or door of your/their home.

COVID-19 ALERT SIGNS

Good luck to everyone,

ICT Team
