Abstract

The aim of basic life support (BLS) training is to give providers the skills and knowledge to deliver high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Following training, BLS and advanced life support skills often decay quickly.1?3As CPR quality is associated with patient outcome following cardiac arrest,4?9 there is a need to develop strategies to optimise CPR skill acquisition and retention.
