RQI Will Be Live in
Welcome Columbia Memorial Hospital
Thank you for making the commitment to save more lives from cardiac arrest. Resuscitation Quality Improvement® (RQI®) is being implemented at Columbia Memorial Hospital. This innovative program will change and improve how you complete CPR training.
Rethinking CPR education delivery and quality
Why is RQI better than other resuscitation education?
- RQI is delivered through individually accessed stations within your hospital, with robust cleaning guidelines to ensure safety for each user.
- RQI can be completed on your own schedule, rather than a specific class time.
- RQI provides continuity of training when unprecedented situations arise and other methods of training, such as the classroom, may compromise learner safety.
- RQI is integrated seamlessly with American Heart Association science.
- Low-dose, high-frequency training (quarterly training instead of once every two years) is proven to sustain knowledge and skills more effectively over time and at a higher level of quality. This leads to high-quality CPR performance and competence, in turn maximizing lifesaving outcomes from cardiac arrest.
There are many other reasons why RQI is the ideal program for resuscitation education. Please submit a comment or question through the form at the bottom of the page if you’re seeking additional or specific information.
How does RQI work?
RQI learners are assigned a course or courses: RQI Healthcare Provider (includes BLS), RQI ALS, RQI PALS. Learners have a slightly longer introductory session to each course in the initial quarter. Each subsequent quarter features shorter low-dose, high-frequency training with eLearning and skills practice.
RQI eCredentials, representing the gold standard of verified competence in high-quality CPR, are issued with ongoing course completion. Learners can also download a free, traditional two-year American Heart Association eCard. CE/CME credits can be claimed at the completion of all four quarters, credits vary by course and discipline.
If a BLS, ACLS, and/or PALS certification is required for your job, you will automatically be enrolled in the program which is delivered to you via HealthStream. When your login to your Columbia Memorial Hospital HealthStream account you will be able to access your quarterly training content as well as access your current eCredential, your traditional two-year American Heart Association eCard, and CE/CME credits.
On the first day of the calendar quarter (January, April, July, October) you will receive your quarterly assignment to complete by the last day of the calendar quarter. You may need to complete your quarterly assignment via HealthStream or you will be directed to complete the activity on one of the manikin skills stations. All completions will be recorded and tracked by your supervisor via HealthStream.
