Resuscitation education: narrowing the gap between evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and performance using best educational practices

, : Resuscitation education: narrowing the gap between evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and performance using best educational practices. Pediatric Clinics of North America 55(4): 1025-50, Xii

Recent data from in- and out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary arrests reveal that health care teams frequently deviate from American Heart Association guidelines during resuscitation efforts. These discrepancies between the current state of evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and the quality of basic and advanced life support actually delivered represent a missed opportunity and provide a significant target for optimizing patient outcomes through improved educational effectiveness. This article presents discussion of the quality of resuscitation delivered to patients, a brief history of the development of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and attempts to translate the science of resuscitation to the bedside through effective educational strategies, a review of educational best practices that relate to resuscitation education, and discussion of the role of medical simulation in resuscitation training.

Although theoretical models, such as the Transtheoretical Model (TTM) explain a respectable amount of exercise behaviour, there is still a significant amount of unexplained variance in exercise behaviour.
