Abstract

Background: Structured resuscitation training programmes or courses take various forms. All aim to optimise standards of resuscitation and improve patient care. There appears to be no definitive training programme length or content, or a defined optimum time after a course for when a learner should be retrained. Summary of work: To try and clarify these issues, we are conducting a BEME review to determine the impact of structured resuscitation training on healthcare practitioners, their clients and wider service. Summary of results: Searching CINAHL, Pub Med and Medline revealed 3781 articles. These were reduced to 450 ‘possibles’ by a nominated group member. To date, scoring of the abstracts and subsequently full articles has resulted in 109 being included. MESH terms and references from the first 50 articles were reviewed to ensure that no relevant articles had been missed. A nominated group member gave each article a Kirkpatrick score (4 = resulting in organisational change or benefit to patients – see below). To ensure consistency and validity other group members ‘double-scored’ those articles initially classified as Kirkpatrick 3 and above. Kirkpatrick scores 1 2a 2b 3 4a 4b 8 12 28 46 7 8 Articles have been classified as adult, paediatric, and neonatal and coded. Preliminary findings will be discussed.
