Abstract

Présentation PowerPoint ALERT protocol: Efficiency of an e-learning training in a non-Advanced Medical Priority Dispatch System (AMPDS) Emergency Medical Services centres Corresponding author: Alexandre Ghuysen Tel. :+3243667729 ; fax :+3243667723 E-mail address : [email protected] Results Conclusion keywords Objectives Methods Reference Contacts The dispatcher’s window is a precious time period during which dispatchers may help bystanders make a dramatic difference in victim’s outcome1. We previously demonstrated that the ALERT algorithm, a simple and effective compression-only phone CPR protocol, has the potential to help bystanders initiate CPR2, 3. However, using the ALERT protocol requires knowledge acquisition and continuous dispatcher’s training. The present study compares the cost-effectiveness of e-learning training process versus classical ex-cathedra courses. 1. Nolan JP, Soar J, Zideman DA, et al.

Compared with the method ex-cathedra, e-learning for teaching the ALERT protocol provided in the dispatching 112 Liege is efficient.
