CALS in Australia and New Zealand
2017 is an exciting year for us, as Centres in Australia and New Zealand are beginning to offer CALS training.
As in the Europe and the US we are collaborating with clinicians , nurses and professions allied to medicine to develop guidelines for resuscitation post cardiac surgery that address the challenges and resources found in centres across Australia and New Zealand
A number of centres in Sydney , Melbourne and Adelaide (Australia) and Waikato (New Zealand) are in the process of starting to teach CALS and develop into Centres of Excellence (a model pioneered in CALS in the UK).
A group led by Craig Jurasevic (Adelaide) and Christian Karcher (Melbourne) will be working with the ANZSCTS to create a bespoke guideline for Australia and New Zealand for Resuscitation after Cardiac Surgery.
