Where My Cart? Piloting a New Approach to Basic Life Support Training

Description

We sought to test the feasibility of a quarterly self-service program training in Basic Life Support (BLS) as an alternative to the current American Heart Association recommendation for in-person biannual bolus training. The pilot program demonstrated difficulties encountered during implementation, as well as gave insight into areas for improvement for such a program.
