Paediatric Life Support

A taster of APLS skills and techniques in our one day introductory course

The one day Paediatric Life Support course is an introduction to the APLS approach, focused on the first ten minutes of emergency paediatric care.

PLS courses are usually held within hospitals and are exclusive to staff of that hospital only.

On November 14th in Melbourne, we have a rare opportunity to join a PLS course which is open to all for general registrations.

You can find the registration link and more about PLS below.
