Undergraduate nursing students demonstrated a significant decay of both CPR knowledge and skill 10 weeks following CPR training.
Adaptive spaced education boosts learning efficiency, allowing students to achieve learning with substantially less effort.
Traditional CPR training programs increase CPR knowledge and skill, but significant long-term effects could not be found. Regular and periodic recertification of CPR skills is needed.
Healthcare assistants and other support staff would benefit from more frequent resuscitation training to develop core BLS skills.
Low dose-high frequency, case based psychomotor CPR training enhanced in-hospital clinical CPR quality.
Low dose-high frequency, case based psychomotor training is a feasible method to enhance CPR skill retention in the hospital.
Brief, monthly practice sessions helped providers retain CPR psychomotor skills and improved these skills over baseline.
A “rolling refresher” simulation training program demonstrated significant improvement with low-dose, high frequency skills to manage a pediatric code cart with retention after initial training in PICU nurses.
