Changes of Basic Life Support

Given the importance of physical distancing and other protective measures, Heart & Stroke has developed a 2-part approach, deconstructing our traditional instructor-led learning programs into a cognitive element and an in-person skills element which can be completed at a later date (after the pandemic):

  • Part 1: Virtual cognitive learning - A shift to cognitive only learning in a virtual, interactive way, facilitated by a Heart & Stroke instructor.
  • Part 2: Hands-on skills practice and skills testing components – This will take place once physical distance requirements are amended.

BLS Blended is still being offered:

A self-directed online cognitive program: the Online Component

And

A classroom-based skills session: the In-Classroom Component will take place once physical distance requirements are amended.
